Made with custard, fruits and pound cake. It’s a very easy, instant and delicious dessert.

My favorite ingredient is rooh afza. I love it!

A few of my all time favorites:

Eid celebration snacks and meals


I always am on the look for easy recipes. I am not a big fan of staying in kitchen for long (I love to eat but not cook too much).
These recipes can also be fantastic for Ramadan.

Aloo Chana Chaat

  A simple mix of boiled potatoes and some spices garnished with coriander, very tasty.

I love to add chaat masala.

BBQ eid recipes

BBQ Chicken Kebab Skewers

Traditionally a mince recipe. Replaced with chicken by many people as a more healthier diet option.


club sandwiches eid recipes
Club Sandwiches
One of my ever favorite recipe. I will never grow tried of eating these sandwiches.
Not to mention French Fried and coleslaw on the side are Must Haves.
To make the ones I love the most. You need to boil the chicken and mix it with mayo to make a spread. Now grill the sandwich slice and spread mayo on it. Spread the chicken mixture and put some cucumbers on it. Put another slice of grilled bread over it. Spread mayo and put a thin slice of fried egg. Add tomatoes and lettuce on top. Now cover it with another slice of grilled bread. Place a toothpick it in to keep it in place. Cut into slices and serve.

Mouthwatering Eid snacks and meals

chicken pakoras recipes
Chicken Pakora
Usually cooked in Ramadan more than on Eid. But I wanted to share this recipe because it’s awesome.
You can also use the same recipe for making Pakoras. Just replace chicken with potatoes, cottage cheese, jalapenos or onions.
Super simple to make. Marinate boneless chicken in salt and pepper or any spice you like.
Now cut small pieces. Prepare a mixture of basin with salt, black pepper, red pepper and chaat masala. Now dip the chicken and fry it in the oil on low flame so the chicken cooks. Serve it with sprinkle of chaat masala.
chick pea salad recipes
I think the picture says it all. Healthy and delicious.
I love to add imli (amli), lemon and chaat masala to it.
papri chaat recipes

Papri Chaat

 The word “Chaat” means Savoury Snacks. You can never make a mess out of Chaat.
It’s one of the easiest snack ever made.
dahi baray recipes
It’s not spicy so your kids are going to love it. Do you have fussy eaters who don’t like Lentils (Dal).
You must make this for them.
Very traditional dish, typically spicy. And is usually marinated in chicken tikka masala over night (or for several hours). 

I hope you enjoyed this round of traditional South Asian desserts, snacks and side dishes.

I wish you a very healthy and happy Eid.
