Photographer Iman Al-Dabbagh, @photosbyiman based in Jeddah, SaudiArabia, shares her Iftar at her mother’s house in Jeddah: "The main dish in the middle is Saleeg, a hijazi dish which is rice cooked with milk and broth which can be either chicken or meat and in this case, it is a bit of both. There is also a whole roasted chicken with veggies; beets salad, sambousek, mushroom soup and tomato with meatball soup."
