Ramadan is an Islamic religious observance that takes place during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, when the Qur'an was revealed. It is considered the most venerated and blessed month of the Islamic year. Prayers, fasting, charity, and self-accountability are especially stressed at this time; religious observances associated with Ramadan are kept throughout the month.

 The most prominent event of this month is the daytime fasting (sawm) practiced by most observant Muslims.Iftar refers to the evening meal for breaking the daily fast during the Islamic month of Ramadan. Iftar during Ramadan is often done as a community, with Muslims gathering to break their fast together. Iftar is done right after Maghrib (sunset) time.

The fast is intended to be an exacting act of deep personal worship in which Muslims seek a raised level of closeness to God. It also allows Muslims to practise self-discipline, sacrifice, and sympathy for those who are less fortunate, intended to make Muslims more generous and charitable.

Popular Iftari recipes:

1. DATE. Traditionally, a date is the first thing to be consumed during Iftar when the fast is broken.

Nice post! Though I've never fasted during Ramadan, I've had the opportunity of savouring delicacies at Iftar gatherings. I think this Holy month, apart from having religious significance, helps in instilling discipline in people who diligently follow a routine for 30 days.

Nice blog. Also a couple of dishes like "Haleem" and "Sheer Korma" are very popular preparations during Ramadan. Haleem is an absolutely delicious dish prepared with meat/poultry mixed in grains and spices. This dish is slow cooked for about 7 -8 hours so the meat becomes like a paste and blends well with the spices and wheat. Haleem is extremely popular in most Islam countries as well as in Hyderabad, India. In fact a particular place in Hyderabad, called Pista House (near Charminar) is so famous for its haleem during Ramadan month that the place apparently employees nearly 500 -700 people to distribute haleem in different parts of the city. Also most Bollywood Actors get haleem from this particular place flown in while hosting their 'iftar' parties. Owing to its immense popularity, a vegetarian version of haleem is also prepared in some places. A fellow foodie, Farheen has recently posted a delicious recipe for Haleem. Here's the link http://www.ifood.tv/recipe/hyderabadi_haleem Another popular dessert during Ramadan is 'Sheer Korma' which is a vermicelli pudding reduced in milk and topped with cashews, pistachios and raisins and sometimes garnished with saffron too.
