Eid-ul-Fitr is the most auspicious day for Muslims across the world. But since we are experiencing a pandemic, celebrations have been restricted within the four walls of our home. But that doesn’t stop the spirit of festivities around Eid. It is celebrated on the day of the first sighting of the crescent moon and marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. From biryani to tikkas, kebabs to Haleem, a quintessential Eid spread is a melange of rich, meaty, and wholesome dishes.
So we have curated a list of 5 delicious dishes and desserts that you must have on this Eid.
No feast is complete without the show-stopping mutton biryani? The shahi mutton biryani is a traditional recipe of a dum-style biryani. It has alternating layers of cooked, creamy mutton and saffron rice, and is sure to make you win the Eid-party game.
The meaty lentil soup-like dish is next-to-none when comes to comfort food for non-vegetarians. The rich mutton stew is cooked with broken wheat and made with a delicious mix of Indian spices. The dish is slow-cooked and usually served during the Eid feast.
Sheer khurma is the biryani of desserts. The flavourful vermicelli and milk pudding is prepared especially during Ramadan and Eid and is relished by the young and the old with equal delight.
Seekh Kabab has its rightful place when it comes to Eid celebration. The smokey kabab flavour is prepared by dicing the meat into Keema. Quite simple to cook and best thing to have as starters. Don’t forget to add the dips.
Quite similar to kheer, phirni is typically milk thickened with rice flour and flavoured with cardamom, saffron, rose water, and topped with pistachios and nuts. It is prepared during Eid and is indeed quite delicious.
