The holy month of Ramadan or Ramzan, during which Muslims across the world observe a fast or roza from dawn to dusk, begins today. Worshippers eat a meal before sunrise after which they abstain from eating and also drinking water until after sunset when they have the Iftar meal with their families. The celebrations may be restrained this time owing to the lockdown, but you can always add some extra flavours to your day by trying new recipes. To help you, we have put together some recipes that will make for a loving feast after a full day of fasting.
