Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, is a holy month observed by Muslims worlwide. They keep a fast from sunrise to sunset. Globally, Muslims come together to participate in these age-old rituals. 

Suhoor and Iftaar are the names of the two meals that Muslims eat during the month of Ramadan. Suhoor is supposed to be eaten before sunrise. After that, not a single piece of food or a drop of water can be consumed who's fasting. Generally, people who fast consume Khajoor. So, you can eat Khajoor Ki Barfi to break your Roza.

  • 2 teaspoon raisins
  • 2 teaspoons grated kernels
  • 2 spoon chironji
  • 4 spoons desi ghee
