This episode of ABC podcast ‘Soul Search’ features Recipes for Ramadan contributor Farukh Tehery. Presenter Meredith Lake visited the home of Farukh and her brother Rahmatullah, who were evacuated from Kabul to Sydney last year after the Taliban seized control.
For the Tahery family, who have a proud history of promoting the rights of women in Afghanistan, their recipe for Bolani represents solidarity between women.

A special thanks to Canterbury Bonkstown Counsil for being major sponsor and for helping buil a great community
City of Canterbury Bankstown, situated in southwest metropolitan Sydney, is the largest Council, by population, in NSW. More importantly, it is home to one of the most richly diverse and multicultural communities in the state. Since its creation in 2016, CBCity, under the leadership of Mayor Khal Asfour has been working towards delivering services for and supporting the community. Mayor Asfour has also championed the City’s rich diversity and mosaic of cultures that make Canterbury-Bankstown the unique place that it is. That includes taking part in hosting Sydney’s largest Ramadan Festival, Ramadan Nights Lakemba. The festival, in the spirit of Ramadan, brings everyone together not just from within the community, but from afar to enjoy food from around the world. Sadly, the festival can’t go ahead this year, that’s why CBCity is proud to support Recipes for Ramadan.
