Eid is all about sharing good food with friends and family, enjoying traditional dishes and serving up indulgent treats to mark the end of Ramadan. It’s also a time for giving, which means making plenty of delicious finger food or sharing pots to go round at home, serve up at parties or hand out in the community. Here’s a handy guide to help you make sure you buy what you need for your Eid celebrations.
Buy extra supplies of fresh Ingredients
Fresh fruit and veg always adds a burst of colour to Eid celebrations, so keeping lots of key items like garlic, chillies and mango at home means you can rustle up traditional dishes as and when you need to for gatherings - planned and unplanned.
Ideas for your fresh ingredients:
- Aloo Saag
- Fruit Chaat
- Mango Lassi
Ideas for kitchen cupboard ingredients:
- Ginger & Garam Masala Raita
- Vegetable Biryani Rice
- Chapati Veggie Kebabs
- Halva Puri
Save time with ready-to-cook halal meats
If you’re short on time or your plans change during Eid, these ideas are great for last-minute catering. Cook from chilled ready to take along to a get-together with friends and family, donate to a community party or share with neighbours.
