The World-Famous Moroccan pastries during Eid-al-Fitr


Moroccan pastries come in many different shapes and sizes and use many different ingredients. During the holy fasting month of Ramadan, the Chabakeya is most commonly eaten by Moroccans to break fast as it is sweet and contains a lot of energy. But even outside of Ramadan the pastries are still very popular: they are eaten at Moroccan weddings; celebrations like Eid-al-Fitr which starts today and even for everyday treats throughout the year.

It is easy to find Moroccan pastries in specialist shops throughout the Medina and in the Souks for a very reasonable price. In these shops the sweets and pastries are made by hand on site using recipes passed down through the generations.

They often displayed so nicely, in such an enticing way, that you have to be careful not to buy too many!!
