Eid Creations

Muslims around the world celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr (literally translated from Arabic as 'festival of breaking the fast') in mid-May, marking the end of fasting during the month of Ramadan. To celebrate, we prepared many dishes, including traditional stuffed 'kharak' (stuffed dates).   

We also made a traditional dish called 'kheer' to celebrate Eid. This dish is a rich vermicelli pudding made with milk, nuts, dates, sugar and often cardamom. The nuts used are usually cashew nuts, but we tend to use a variety, and, of course, we use vanilla too!
