In Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Sutarsih spends the day cooking four dishes for her family’s iftar dinner—chicken curry, gudangan (vegetables with coconut), kolak (plantains and cassava) and deep-fried tofu. She values the sense of togetherness and calm Ramadan brings and the feeling of joy that washes over her every evening when she gathers with her children and grandchildren to break the daily fast. Join us for all the delicious food Sutarsih has so lovingly prepared.
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.
