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.
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!
