The most sought after fruit during Ramadhan
The month of Ramadan is one of the most awaited months by Muslims around the world. During this month of Ramadan, we Muslims are obliged to perform a worship called fasting. We must refrain from eating and drinking and refrain from doing things that can lead to sin.
During the fasting month, there will usually be a lot of people selling various kinds of menus to break the fast in the afternoon. From light snacks to heavy meals. Drinks are also sold and many kinds. Starting from those made from milk to from fruits that are only sold during Ramadhan.
Well, for those of you who don't know, in Indonesia there are several fruits that are only sold during the month of Ramadan. What are the fruits? Here I name the fruit that is only available during the month of Ramadan:
• Timun Suri
Timun Suri or Cucumis melo var momordica is one of the most sought-after fruits because of this fruit because this fruit is very suitable for mixed drinks. This fruit will be widely sold when approaching or entering the month of Ramadan.
Kolang Kaling or sugar palm fruit is also the most people buy because it is very suitable for mixed drinks such as syrup or fruit soup. This fruit feels more suitable for sweet drinks because this fruit doesn't have a sweet taste, it's just bland. So it won't add any more sweetness to the drink.
"Wait, aren't there always bananas for sale apart from the month of Ramadan?"
That's right. But in the month of Ramadan, bananas are one of the most purchased fruits too. One of the favorite preparations of Indonesians is Kolak Pisang or in English it is called Banana compote. This preparation is the most made and most people also sell it because it is very suitable to be used as an iftar menu. Usually not only bananas are used, there are sweet potatoes or cassava as a mixture to make Kolak.
Who knows Blewah? Blewah or in English Cantaloupe is one of the most sought-after fruits because this fruit is very suitable for mixed drinks. The reason this fruit is much sought after is because this fruit has a fairly fresh and sweet taste. Cantaloupe is also easy to process, so it is perfect for mixed drinks.
So, here are some of the most sought-after fruits during Ramadan. Actually there are still some fruits that are most sought after when entering the month of Ramadan. But I'm looking for information about the most common fruit people buy. Do you have a favorite fruit for your iftar menu? Tell me in the comments.
