Today we celebrate ‘Eid al-Adha’, commonly known as Bakra Eid, it is the second Islamic festival of the year which is celebrated with utmost zeal.
Also known as the ‘festival of sacrifice’, the festival represents Prophet Abraham’s will to sacrifice everything for Allah. The festival marks the promise that there is no one else greater than Allah.
A very important part of the religious festivity, as well as culture, is the food. It is not a lesser-known fact that on the occasion, various dishes are served on the plate that it seems unbelievable to finish it in one go, and yet, the dishes lure us towards themselves.
Bringing some of the famous delicacies which are served on the occasion.
Served best with lemon juice and raw onions, Shami Kebabs is the light side dish that can be enjoyed with a hefty meal.
Cooked with papaya and ginger garlic paste, the dish can be enjoyed best with roomali roti as well as rice.
Mutton Stew, also known as Mutton Ishtu is also one of the common dishes served on the occasion. The dish comparatively takes lesser time to be prepared and served, which is it is very often enjoyed by people.
Every main course meal is empty without a sweet dish. Sheer Khurma is prepared using vermicelli, milk, sugar, dates and other ingredients. The sugary-creamy delight can be best served hot.
Another famous ingredient included in the meal is its bread, with Sheermal, that empty spot is filled. As now, along with the savoury Korma, Kebab and Ghost, a sweet naan made of maida can be enjoyed.
