Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, like many others, celebrated Eid today with much fervour. The diva, who recently made it to the list of '30 Top Health and Fitness Influencers in India,' posted an Eid special binge video and for that she chose one of the most classic Indian desserts, which is very rare to get - qubani ka meetha. But, that's not it, the table was brimming with some more delectable dishes and desserts like payasam, mangoes, ice creams and custard. Joining her for this Eid binge party were Shabana Azmi, Anil Kapoor, Javed Akhtar, Diya Mirza and Aditi Rao Hydri at Shabana Azmi's house. Have a look!
Doesn't that look heavenly? Shilpa also revealed on Instagram that qubani ka meetha is best paired with custard. "Not a Sunday.. but it's EID BINGE..

Khubani means apricot in Urdu. For this dish, dried apricots are boiled with sugary syrup until the concoction gets form of thick soup. This exotic dessert is topped with blanched almonds or apricot kernels, and is traditionally garnished with malai, custard or ice cream.
