Ramadan Food Festival

Every year on my blog, inshallah I plan to host two events revolving around the only two Eids (festivals) that are celebrated by Muslims all over the world. Eid-ul-Fitr, is the first Muslim festival that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. It is the ninth Islamic Arabic month, according to the lunar calender. Every Muslim fasts during this whole month. It is also the month when Quran, the Holy book of Mulims, was sent down from heaven. The daytime in Ramadan is spent fasting, and after dawn, the fast is broken and traditional treats and memorable feasts are cooked up and served. To read more about Ramadan, click here.

The Hyderabadi Ramadan Food Festival:

To showcase the typical dishes that are usually prepared by Hyderabadis during the auspicious month of Ramadan, inshallah this event will be announced/held every year on my blog during the whole month of Ramadan, so that you can send me the recipes along with pictures of the dishes that are preparing for Iftaar as well as Suhoor.

The logo for the event is as follows:
