What is Muharram?
Muharram is the first month in the Islamic calendar. Some Muslims eat a symbolic meal or dessert on the Day of Ashura, known as Noah's pudding. Ingredients may include water, grains, pulses, fresh and dried fruit, salt and honey. The dish may be garnished with orange or lemon rind, spices, nuts and pomegranate seeds. Muslims are urged to enjoy the dish and to share it with their neighbours.
