Win iftar for two at Radisson Blu Dubai Media City

All you have to do is subscribe to our YouTube page and comment on the video


It’s the final few days before Eid, so it’s the perfect time to try out some new recipes.

But if you’re not sure where to start, then you’re in luck. We went to the Radisson Blu Dubai Media City where chef Karim showed us how to make iftar favourites including chicken ablama, falafel and seafood bastilla.

And even better, we've got four iftars to give away at the hotel's Chef's House. All you have to do is comment on this video and subscribe to the Time Out Dubai YouTube channel. Each winner will get iftar for two people, so it's a pretty huge giveaway.

We'll be announcing the winners on Monday at 5pm, with the iftar for Tuesday or Wednesday night.

Iftar is the meal with which Muslims break their daily fast – and there are hundreds to choose from across Dubai.

Some offer Middle Eastern cuisines and buffets, while others feature contemporary and fusion twists on traditional fare.

Traditionally, the fast is broken with dates and a small drink of either water, juice or Arabic coffee, before prayers are undertaken, following which iftar is served.

Often, Emirati families put on big evening meals for all their family and friends – you’ll sometimes see iftar tents pop up outside big villas – though many also dine out at the many restaurants around the city.

The meal usually starts with soup – such as shorbat (lentil soup) – before mains are brought out, featuring rice, salads, grilled meats and more, and finally a selection of sweets treats for dessert.
