My Eid Feast

Happy Eid to all my readers around the world, hope you had lots of fun with family ,friends and neighbours :)

As always, Ramadan was the most beautiful time of the year and Alhumdulillah, so was Eid, filled with love and laughter.

The fact that I am writing about Eid a day later explains it all , it was a busy, busy ,very busy weekend The celeberations started , a day before Eid, the chaand raat (its called the chaand raat , as the eid moon is sighted that night). Two of my friends hosted the Chaand Raat Party, which were a blast. So the Eid prep at my home started at around 12 midnight after a cup of some nice coffee. I was up all night prepping and cooking and trust me it was fun !

In the morning we went to the mosque for eid prayers, met friends, the whole place was filled with the sounds of Eid Mubarak and whiffs of delicous food. Then we went to a friends place who had invited us for Eid lunch. As much as I was tempted for a small nap post lunch, I hardly got any time for that.

In the evening , I was hosting my friends for a eid dinner. I had catered Biryani and Chicken Seekh Kababs. Haleem, Sheer Kurma, raita, Salad, Rose Sherbet, Chole Masala, Naan, Motichoor Laddoos, Strawberries, Hummus with lentil crackers were also part of the menu. My neighbor and good friend bought caprese Salad on a stick which too was a big hit with all.

We exchanged hugs and gifts, munched on delicious food in the company of good friends , what more could you ask for ?

It was such a busy time that taking a pic of the eid feast did not even cross my mind , though the camera was right in front of me all the time :)

As much fun as it was, the hope and anticipation for the next Ramadan is with all of us and the wait begins...
