Five Ramadan Iftar Meals Around the World

Five Ramadan Iftar Meals Around the World

1.6 billion Muslims are celebrating Ramadan around the world. As this holy month comes to a close, families around the world are preparing their last iftar meals to break their daily fasts. Venture into the kitchen of five Muslim women preparing food for their families in five different countries, from India to Syria to the United States. Many are cooking recipes handed down to them from their mothers, relying on memory and instinct rather than measuring cups or spoons to prepare the perfect, flavorful dish. Though none of these women have met one another, there is a bond of tradition and global community that connects them.
