i know we get hungry when fasting, but this is actively deliberately obsessing about food. kinda not the spirit, no?

 

Maybe you feel like that because a lot of Desi families get into eating a lot for Ramadan, so you're thinking of this thread in those terms. But I made this thread to talk about iftar experiences, since I'm curious what you lot in Muslim families normally do. I was interested in like if you eat with your families, if you go to Mosques, etc.. I don't really associate Ramadan with obsessing about food. But I do think it is a fun time of the year and I enjoy going to iftar dinners, because you get to see people in the community who you might not see often. It's one of the few times of the year I talk with random Muslims who are not already friends. I don't see anything wrong with that.

 

Hence, if you read my OP, I didn't say that I'm wondering what you guys ate. I said, "You can use this thread like the suhoor thread, and just post what you're doing/did that night for iftar."

 

p.s. Maybe you haven't read much or put much thought into feasts, but it's typically considered more a social activity than a food-obsessing one.

Aw :( I liked that poem..Also I thought this thread was more about getting to know different cultural norms during Ramadhan from different people.

Yesterday I made a lasagne for iftar, I used fresh pasta which is much better! I usually have some fruit after my meal, its how they do it in Libya. Your dessert is usually any fruit that's in season.

Fruit chaat is a total desi thing.

 

Today I made spaghetti! It's way easier than I thought it would be, considering how scrumptious it is.

 

And date cookies. Those are delicious. They're basically dates and those healthy baby biscuits (or biscuits with a baby on the box, not sure if that's supposed to mean that they're for babies).
