Eid is the first day of the month Shawwal. Eid is one of the most widely celebrated festivals across the world. According to the Islamic calendar, Eid is celebrated twice a year as Eid al-Adha, and Eid ul-Fitr. Eid ul-Fitr means "the feast of breaking the fast." Eid ul-Fitr is also known as Meethi Eid, since the signature dish associated with the festival is meethi sevaiyan or sweet vermicelli. But that in no way means that Eid ul-Fitr is any short of savoury goodness. A quintessential Eid ul-Fitr spread is as much about the rich, spicy and meaty indulgences as it is about the sugary and delectable desserts. We have picked some of our best Eid special snacks for you.
This festive gathering, don the chef cap and impress your family and friends with these amazing Eid special snacks.
