The joy of sharing a special feast with your family or friends on Eid is a scene to behold. Eid always holds a strong relationship with food.
Food has an inextricable connection with festivities. After all, they can easily make or break an occasion. And when it comes to Eid, food is an integral part of the festivities. Apart from Haleem, Mutton Korma, Biryani, Nihari, Tangri Kebabs, Sheermal, Seekh Kebab, Bhuni Raan, desserts like Sheer Khurma, Kimami Sewaiyan, Phirni, Shahi Tukda are Eid delicacies. A feast for the senses, food on Eid is all about celebration and the end of Ramadan and is dominated by several desserts.
It is also a great way to experience the culinary culture and heritage that has shaped the city’s tag of being the UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy. While food has been an intrinsic part of the city’s culture, the period of Ramadan and Eid is when the culinary strength comes to the fore – and whether you are vegetarian or non-vegetarian, you will be spoilt for choice.
