10 Most Satisfying Iftar Meals From Around The World! 🌍
Iftar is the evening meal with which Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset. Fasts are broken at the time of the call to prayer in evenings.
Chakcouka from Tunisia & elsewhere: a delicious dish of tomatoes, onions, pepper, spices, eggs. Iftar is incomplete in North Africa without Chakcouka.
Curry prawns from Malaysia and elsewhere: the aroma from fragrant kaffir lime leaf and spicy chillies is perfect for breaking a long Ramadan fast!
Jollof Rice and Chicken from Nigeria & elsewhere: there’s nothing like jollof rice and spicy chicken stewed in tomatoes, broth and spices for Iftar.
Arroz Caldo from the Philippines: the contents of a typical Iftar include water and Arroz Caldo - hard boiled eggs, fried chicken anchovies & toast!
Shorbatadas from the Middle East: a common household dish to break the fast is shorbatadas or lentil soup. It’s the first course of an Iftar meal.
Kolak pisang from Indonesia: containing palm sugar, coconut milk and banana, it’s a refreshing sweet treat after a long fast in tropical temperatures.
Harira from Morocco: often made with lamb or chicken in the form of a soup, it is definitely not safe for Ramadan...unless the sun is down for Iftar!
Samosas from Pakistan, India and elsewhere: Ramadan isn’t complete without these delicacies. Usually, a fried or baked pastry with a savoury filling.
Harees from the UAE: wheat, barley & a form of meat are cooked together until melted. Perfect for Ramadan, as it is only eaten during the Holy Month.
Bourek from Turkey and elsewhere: bourek is usually eaten as an appetiser before the main Iftar meal. Filled with meat, potatoes & cheese - divine! 😍
