The world is gearing up to celebrate Eid 2020 on May 23rd-24th. It  also marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan that is characterised by fasting during the day. On the day of Eid, however, there is no fasting. Eid-ul-Fitr is also known as 'Meethi Eid' and the celebrations of this festival are marked by widespread prayer offering, charity and feasting. Millions of Muslim families around the world invite friends and relatives over to their houses on the day of Eid to indulge in delicious food and drinks. For those hosting the party, the day before can be hectic, as Eid feasts have elaborate dishes and desserts.

2. Eid Drinks

Eid-ul-Fitr is a summer festival and after the end of the month-long fasting period, people love to indulge in some delicious and hydrating drinks. These usually contain a lot of cooling and hydrating ingredients like rose water, curd and yogurt, lemon juice etc., as well as summer fruits like watermelon, litchi, mango etc. Three of the best drinks you can offer your guests for the Eid party are paan thandai, watermelon basil cooler and mint kiwi lemonade.

3. Eid Main Course

For the main course, some slow-cooked meat dishes can light up your Eid party like nothing else will. There are endless options to choose from, but some of the best slow-cooked non-vegetarian dishes are the classics and we recommend lamb rogan josh, nalli nihari and mutton bhuna gosht for the main course. You can pair these with a whole range of breads from naans to kulchas to tandoori rotis. For rice-lovers, murgh biryani would be perfect.

4. Eid Desserts

For desserts, a typical Eid feast contains sweet dishes with vermicelli, dried fruits, nuts, milk and ghee in them. The one criterion that Eid desserts must fulfil is that it must give you an instant sugar rush. Needless to say, they must also be rich in taste and flavour. Our recommendations include paneer malpua, zarda pulao and sheer khurma. If you have a little extra time on your hands and want to go the distance, you can also try the baklava to give your Eid party the perfect ending.
