Good and really knowledgeable. I would love to visit these places.
Omg this phirnis looks sooo good. I loved Ramadan in Egypt and Morocco. Would.love.to.experience India too
This would be such an amazing experience to have. I’ll have to try to make it there one day
Iftar is such an amazing concept. I myself have been a part of quite a few parties and I love how people bond with each other. From your post, I really love the picture of families sitting together in front of the mosque to have food.
The bakeries you mention sound very tempting! What beautiful colourful food dish too
Nice round up of some vibrant places to visit during Ramadan. Indeed during Ramadan, these places and many others around India transform into a dazzling melting pot of culture and cuisine.
Muslim architecture is incredibly beautiful and graceful. I love how the sunset shines over the Jama Masjid. Very serene and spectacular.
I love India and what could be a great time to come back for a third time to this beautiful country than on Ramadan time 🙂
I can’t help but wonder if they also serve these awesome foods when it is not Ramadan. I would like to have a food tour at the places that you have mentioned. The phirni looks delicious and I love pistachios. I would try to find this here in the Philippines.
Dear Iza, most of the foods are available without Ramadan as well.except few like Phirni…
Since we stay in Delhi, we have planned a visit to the Jama Masjid this Ramadan. Hope to delve deep into the magical atmosphere and savour some famed street food appropriate to the occasion. Your pictures are inspiring.
I go every year at least for one iftar in jama masjid. this year also will go in mid of the ramzan on weekend. i will also advise you to attend a iftar in jama masjid. it will be a great experience. you can join us if dont mind…
I forget how much I miss India until I read your posts. New Delhi was once of my favourite places and that photo at sunset is absolutely breathtaking. I always have a nostalgic trip down memory lane, and it is so lovely to read about these places with some cultural context.
