Ramadan 2022: Ramadan is almost here. The ninth month of the Islamic calendar is celebrated by Muslims around the world through fasting, prayers and community. This is also the time when lip-smacking Iftar dishes are prepared and served to break the fast.

The special desserts for iftar are equally tasty for their nutritious dishes. We have prepared a list of recipes that you can make at home and enjoy with your friends and family.
