Breaking the fast

Tomorrow on the 10th of July Ramadan, a time of fasting for the Islamic people starts. After the sunset the fast is broken by the iftar or dinner shared with the whole family.

Mostly during iftar one can find traditional food in the households. To support the women in Salalah, Dhofar, Anisa, better known as Umm Mazin ( mother of Mazin) launched an idea. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry and WhatsApp did the rest.

For the first time, 53 women show a whole month the best of their cooking. At Al Medan, behind Al Hakeem Medical Center, between 2pm and 6.30pm for breaking the fast one can buy Omani traditional food, from main dish till desert.
