‘Id Mubarak!

Masjid an Nabi

It’s ‘Id ul Fitr once again, the Muslim celebration that comes after the month of fasting, Ramadhan. I haven’t posted in a while but what else is new ;) Rest assured that there are cookings and plannings going on in the household, particularly as this year I am in la casa familial in Trinidad. Even got here a couple days before so I could be part of the planning with Lilandra and Mom.

So what’s on the menu?

Eid ul Fitr menu - Lamb Biriyani

  • Mutton biriyani - for dinner this evening as ‘Id technically begins from the setting of the sun on the last day of fasting.
  • Baked lamb
  • Super cheesey 3-cheese scalloped potatoes
  • Caramelised onion and mushroom tart (on phyllo)
  • Za’atar
  • flat bread
  • Hummus
  • Saheena (the kind that is dasheen bhaji leaves rolled up around ground dhal)
  • Samosas
  • Gulab jamoon
  • And of course….sawine!
  • I hope everyone enjoys Eid, and of course the 49th anniversary of Trinidad and Tobago’s independence! Fortunate T&T with 2 holidays to celebrate Eid ul Fitr this year :-)

    4. Hi Olinu – welcome. I know I have been a little inactive but I am hoping for a spurt come December when I get some time off work :-)
