The world is preparing for Eid-ul-Fitr, and arrangements are well underway. Ramadan comes to an end on Eid. On this particular day, people pray to the Almighty and gather later in the day for a lavish feast. A typical Eid spread is a culinary pleasure as well as a total indulgence. The three-day Eid al-Fitr festival, also known as Sweet Eid, brings Muslims from all over the world together to mark the end of Ramadan, the month-long fasting season. Families and friends gather to share an elaborate and exquisitely prepared feast in each other's company, which is a hallmark of the Eid celebration.
Here is a sampling of the best sweet and savory Eid al-Fitr foods and dishes from around the world. If you're hosting a party at home or want to go out and try some traditional favorites, we've compiled a list of 11 of our favorite holiday dishes that you must try this season. Here's how it goes:
In countries including India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, a creamy dish known as sheer khurma (or korma/kurma) is traditionally served for Eid al-Fitr. The milky dish, known as seviyan (or sevaiyan) and made of toasted vermicelli-esque noodles, is often topped with almonds or includes dried dates. Shemai is another name for this sweet offering, which is one of the most common and auspicious Eid dishes.
Without BIRYANI, the best part of Eid is just not complete! This is a main course dish made with an aromatic mix of rice and mutton or chicken. It is considered one of the richest dishes. This delectable dish is enjoyed by all and is cooked all over the world. This traditional dish has its own distinct cooking style that takes time but yields an incredible flavor that is well worth the wait. The requisite dish that must be prepared during Eid is the king of all foods.
The star ingredients in this dessert are vermicelli and milk, just as in sheer khurma, but it has a slightly thicker consistency. To make the luscious mix of milk, khoya, sugar, and vermicelli richer, lotus seeds, almonds, coconut, cashews, and raisins are added.
