Fasting is one of those very personal rituals, which you only understand if you have gone through it yourself. People often ask me, don't you get hungry or thirsty?? And really, you cant even drink water??

As a Muslim you grow up with this yearly ritual, Ramadan, and it cleanses, your body, mind and soul.  Like anything in life, the more you do it, the better you get at it. Although you abstain form eating and drinking during the daylight hours, at the end of the day, the kitchen is buzzing with preparations to end the fast of the day.

And for me , living so far from family, I hanker for those memories which I grew up with, and food was a big part of this.  So I will share with you some of the food I cooked in Ramadan, finishing with the lovely sweet Burfi which I made for Eid, which is a lovely Indian fudge, which is my mum's recipe.

I am also hoping to start some culinary demonstrations very soon so watch this space!

Enjoy! Till next time.
