RAMADAN is a holy month for Muslims and Moroccans daily routines are different from the other months of the year. Also, Moroccan families, food habits change and there are many Moroccan traditional foods prepared in advance or during RAMADAN for this special period.
Morocco Traditional Food Prepared Before RAMADAN
Traditionally, Women in Morocco used to prepare many pastries for this happy and holly month for Moroccans to be on the table in the early morning “SUHUR” and the evening meal “ IFTAR or FTOOR” at sunset.
Nowadays, women’s employment in Morocco is increasing and they do not have time to prepare them, so they may just buy them in local pastries shops. If you are living in Morocco, you may witness, a couple of months before RAMADAN, the opening of many temporary shops making and selling these pastries, and most of these shops are closed just after RAMADAN.
