Breaking Fast in Mumbai

During Ramzan, Ruksaba spends the day cooking alongside the other women in her family in preparation for the evening’s iftar. “We measure by guesswork, and each time it works out perfectly,” says Ruksaba, who learned most of the recipes from her mother. On the menu tonight—pakora (fried and battered vegetables), bhajia (fritters, similar to pakora), maida roti (bread), chicken tandoori and chana batata (chickpeas with potatoes).

Ramadan, or Ramzan, is annually observed by Muslims around the world as a holy month of fasting, prayer and community. During this time, those observing will fast from dawn to sunset, refraining from eating or drinking as a means of purifying the body, mind and heart.

After sunset, many will gather to break their fast with family and friends, sharing a meal known as an iftar. Around the world, the languages and the foods might change, but the spirit of love and togetherness is all the same.
