Once a year, Muslims all over the world celebrate the end of Ramadan with Eid-ul-Fitr. After 30 days of fasting, they cook elaborate meals and dress up to commemorate this achievement with friends and family.

This year, Eid fell on Friday 21st April, and here's what we ate to celebrate. First of all, we started with pakoras - fritters composed of deep fried vegetables. Seriously recommend trying if you haven't, they're perfectly snack sized and best served with a dipping sauce such as chutney.

The main meal was biryani. For those unfamiliar, this is a mixed rice dish, ours having been served with chicken and potatoes. The layered combination of meat and rice made for a rich and flavourful dish, again would absolutely recommend if you haven't already tried.

Finally, we finished with the only non-Asian origin dish on the menu, home-made cupcakes. While unadventurous, it's an unbeaten sweet treat and just about as much as I could manage after the other courses.

This was a satisfying feast, and a well-earned reward for 30 days of inconsistent eating and sleeping

All in all, this was a satisfying feast, and well-earned reward for 30 days of inconsistent eating and sleeping - even if I could hardly move afterwards!
