Also, Moroccan food habits change and there is a typical Moroccan Ramadan food for the iftar table during this holy month in the kingdom, and some of them, prepared in advance for this special period.

RAMADAN is a month of fasting, extra prayers at night “Tarawih“, charity and good deeds in general. At the end of RAMADAN, there is an important religious celebration called “Eid Al Fitr” called also by Moroccans “EID SGHIR” which means the small celebration.
