During Ramadan, Chawkbazar in Dhaka comes alive with the sights and smells of hundreds of makeshift stalls selling traditional Iftar delicacies. Iftar is the meal after sunset that breaks the day long fast. Some 15,000 Muslims come to Chawkbazar every day during Ramadan to buy rich mutton curries, sugary treats and refreshing fresh fruits from tiny street stall businesses. How they manage to cook such huge quantities is unbelievable.
