Mouth-Watering eat outs to Treat your Taste Buds with in Mumbai during RamzanJun 21, 2018
Ramzan falls on the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. This month is considered to be a sacred month which involves prayers to the almighty and spread the love. During this month, Muslims across the globe will fast from sunrise to sunset. The meal that is eaten before the sunrise is called the Sehri. People offer prayers to the god and then break their fast. The fast is traditionally broken with dates and a glass of water after the sunset. Then comes the time for a great feast called Iftar which has a variety of dishes ranging from Haleem, shawarma, phirni, sweets and so on. This month is also a very special month for the food lovers as one can get to taste a huge variety of dishes available in various joints.
