Ramadan is a particularly significant month for Muslims، where many take part in fasting from sunrise to sunset. This is one of the five pillars of Islam and is meant to bring you closer to Allah.

While not everyone fasts (pregnant women، children، the elderly and the sick are among those exempt)، most Muslims don’t let food or drink pass their lips during daylight hours.

“Sada el Balad” news website offers you your meal guide during the holy month of Ramadan over the coming 30 days:

For dessert: Knafeh with mango and cream
Ingredients
1 lb of frozen Kataifi - knafeh.
12 cup of butter.
2envelopes Dream Whip.
1 cup of mango juice.
3 ripe mangos - diced.
For the syrup: 2c sugar + 1 c of water + 1 tsp of lime juice.

Directions
Rub the frozen knafeh with your fingers to cut it into small pieces.
Meanwhile combine the ingredients of the syrup، bring to a boil then reduce heat، simmer for 10 minutes until thickened، let it cool down to room temperature.
Melt butter and add to the knafeh، mix knafeh and butter with hand.
Brush two identical oven safe pans with a Tbsp each of melted butter - I've used two 12inch
pizza pans- spread half of the knafeh in each pan and press tightly with a bowl.
Bake in a 350F oven until golden brown.
Prepare the Dream Whip according to package direction using the mango juice.
When the knafeh is done drizzle both parts with some syrup.
Turn one part upside down، spread about 23 of the cream filling.
Add mango pieces، then the other half of the knafeh.
Decorate with the rest of the whipping cream.

-Another easier way - Knafeh parfait-
First melt the butter then add the knafeh
Until golden brown، add the syrup and stir.
This time I've made the whipping cream with milk.
Layer knafeh، cream and mango slices.
Decorate with more mango on top.... Enjoy
