(Persia Digest) - Iran and Tajikistan have cultural similarities, such as the special iftar white pastry in Ramadan.

During the sacred month of Ramadan and on their iftar tables, Tajik fasting Muslims, same as in Hamadan in central Iran, start their iftar with an aromatic pastry called "Angosht Pich or Nishalah".

“Nishalah” is one of the popular Tajik foods in the sacred month of Ramadan, and Tajiks believe that the body will need less water and food by eating this pastry.

Iranian Angosht Pich is a tasty pastry that is very soft and high-energy, and because of the way it stretches when the finger is dipped into the dish to eat it, it is called Angosht Pich [Finger-Wrapped]. However, nowadays it is not eaten by finger, but this name is still used.
