Ramadan is around the corner and along with the reminder for Muslims to stay pious, comes a whole lot of good food. You might be surprised to learn that a holiday that is all about self-control and cleansing the mind and body of toxins through fasting actually includes a lot of irresistible and totally unhealthy foods.

There are quite a lot of dishes that are unique to the holiday so during this holy month, I can’t wait to get home to the smells of mother’s delicious cooking filling up the house the hours before iftaar, which the time we break our fast.
