WATCH: Feeding the 5,000 in the lanes of Dubai

In the winding lanes of Deira sandwiched between garment shops and restaurants, about 5,000 men break their fast daily with a sip of a special broth that is popular in southern India during Ramadan.

Seated on orange and blue tarpaulin stretched out across narrow paths leading to three mosques, thousands of workers in Dubai’s lively shopping district drink from plastic containers filled with kanji.

This rice porridge is also served in mosques to the faithful in India’s Tamil Nadu state during the holy month.
