Roughly a tenth of Trinidad’s population is Muslim, comprising those of East Indian, African, and other mixed backgrounds. In the last decade, Muslim migration to the island from the Middle East and other areas of the Muslim world has grown. This noodle pudding is a traditional dessert for Iftar—the fast-breaking meal during the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. The cherries are a particularly Trinidadian addition.
