My years of stay here in Kuwait have given me the opportunity to observe and experience a different and fascinating culture most especially the Muslims’ practices during Ramadan.
Suhoor is the Islamic term that is considered breakfast consumed early in the morning by Muslims before they start their fasting during the day. For them, Suhoor is a blessing because it allows a person fasting to store enough energy to sustain him / her throughout the day before the evening meal (Iftar) comes later at night. It is very important not to skip this very early morning meal.
Muslim women friends told me that they try to eat nutritious meals, preferably fruits, cheese, breads, vegetables, lentils, beans, rice, cereals and other grains, a glass of milk during Suhoor .
Food consumed at Iftar can be heavy like meat, fish, poultry cooked with alternative methods like deep frying, shallow frying, grilling or baking. These cooking methods help retain the original flavor and taste of food. Juice beverages or yogurt are consumed as well.
