Celebrate Iftar: Food and Tips

In Turkey, no traditional Iftar meal would be complete without the ”Ramadan Pide” – a traditional soft-leavened flatbread with sesame and black cumin seeds made only this year.

Soups are a staple of iftar in Turkey, and one of the most popular is the delicious and nutritious Mercimek – Lentil Soup. Various types of börek, i.e., pastries filled with cheese or meat, are likely to be found on the table with white cheese, black olives, other delicacies, and ayran, a refreshing yogurt drink served during prolonged fasts, Specially popular on warmer days after. Usually, according to the tradition of the prophets, fasts are broken with hurma (dates). The main course is a succulent kebab or hearty stew, followed by luscious honey-soaked treats such as baklava or kunefe, a sweet pastry filled with melted cheese.
