Eid MubarakComments : 3 Posted in : Food, London on by : Reema Tags: Biryani, Dishoom, Eid, Festivals, Kebabs, London, restaurants
Wishing my lovely friends and readers from around the world a very happy and blessed Eid!
Eid marks the end of the month long Ramadan fast and is celebrated with family, friends and indulgent feasting, just like Diwali, Thanksgiving, Christmas and other wonderful occasions.
I love festivals and can’t help but think of food today, specifically kebabs and biryani…yum!
The celebrations going on around me have inspired me to finally have a go at a couple of recipes I saw on Rick Stein’s India show on BBC last month.

Shami Kebabs (click for recipe)
An ambitious culinary project to look forward to over the weekend!
If you are feeling festive but not as brave, consider heading to Dishoom Shoreditch for an afternoon of Eid celebrations on Sunday, 11th August from 2pm – 4pm. Dishoom is one of my favourite restaurants in London and the Eid party promises to be special, complete with story-telling, poetry, henna artists, games and sweets!
Dishoom is also offering a special Eid feast menu until Wednesday the 14th of August – a great way to sample traditional dishes like haleem and biryani.
Tempted yet? I most certainly am and also very hungry now…;)
Eid Mubarak, everyone!
