Wednesday Wisdom: More About Eid
Rise and shine everyone! Done with last minute eid shopping? Don’t wait up if you haven’t. Some of us shop on Chand raat, evening/night before eid when it is announced that moon has been sighted and eid is tomorrow. (Islamic calendar is Lunar) It is the most spectacular night when practically everyone is out shopping … traffic jams, markets all crowded with shoppers, girls getting henna applied on their hand (and sometimes feet too), buying choriyan (glass bangles .. another local festive must have) Call me boring but I prefer planning and doing things ahead to avoid last minute panic attacks and heart breaks. In the last post, Fusion Vermicelli – 3 Eid Special Recipes ,eid’s special was discussed and now is the time to round off the whole menu. We all have our own eid special dishes, both sweet and savory and I would absolutely love to hear what’s yours. Just adding a few suggestions as a guide to make menu planning easy. Fair warning: Some links and post are from very early blogging days when I was taking food pictures with cell phone camera (which I don’t want to change because that is how my journey began) but everything is tried and tested and taste is not compromised at all.
