Qatayief is considered the king of sweets in Ramadan and associated with this holy month. The pancake like dough is filled with all kinds of goodies including cheese nuts, pudding, creams , even with apples. The Qatayief is served hot, fried or baked after its drenched with sugar syrup. There are couple of sizes for these pancakes, regular size and small size that is knows as Asafeeri Qatayief that is filled with cream and pistachios and eaten without baking the dough, but it will be already cooked on a pan.

During Ramadan, one should not ignore a major meal which is Suhoor meal. This meal provides the nutritious that are needed to endure the hunger and thirst throughout the day of fasting. A preferred Suhoor meal should be light and nutritious. Milk or yogurt accompanied with dates is a good suggestion for a Suhoor meal. One dish that is eaten at Suhoor time is Khuhshaf , which is a mix of dry fruits and nuts all soaked in apricot drink.
