The love for food and understanding the importance of both the consumption and abstinence of it is the core of the holy month of Ramadan which ends in the breaking of the fast in Eid-al-Fitr. Ramadan or Ramzan  is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar when  Muslims around the world engage themselves in prayer, fasting, charity, and religious devotion. During this holy month, Muslims around the world abstain from eating and drinking during daylight hours. There’s more to Ramadan than fasting and  avoiding food and drink from dawn to dusk. it’s a month of spiritual detox The holy month of Ramdan helps to cultivate self-discipline which will keep one practicing the rest of the year .


All over the world ,Muslims are encouraged to take their  meal before dawn, and break the fast immediately after sunset. The fast is traditionally broken by eating dates and drinking water. The Ramadan fast is one of the five pillars or basic institutions of Islam which help strengthen a person’s faith, obedience to God and every part  of their life, be it morals, manners, food or dress.

  • Shahadah: Professing your faith by affirming that there is no deity but God and Mohammed is his messenger.
  • Salat: offering Prayerfive times daily.
  • Zakat: Giving to charityto benefit the poor and needy
  • Sawm: Fasting during the month of Ramadan.
  • Hajj:Making a pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in a lifetime.


A typical Islam’s household would start their day with a plate of Shir Khurma for breakfast which is a vermicelli and milk pudding spiced with cardamom . Vermicelli is an integral ingredient which finds it’s place in multitude of dishes and sweets eaten during Ramadan and Eid across the world. I take this wonderful opportunity to include this wonder ingredient in my contribution to our 43rd Foodie Monday Bloghop theme of #Ramadan Special…….Egg Croquette.
