New Delhi: As Ramzan comes to an end, Muslims across the world will celebrate Eid Al-Fitr with a host of traditional sweet treats.
Eid is a beautiful festival, and traditionally we make a lot of sweet dishes for this occasion. So I am showing here some sweet dishes that are perfect for Eid Day.
The traditional warm, sweet vermicelli milk known as sevia (pronounced "sev-ay-a") is popular during Eid in countries such as India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. The treat is made of vermicelli noodles in a dish of boiled, sweetened milk spiced with cardamom and saffron before chopped up dates or pistachios are added for texture.
2. Sheer Kurma
Literally translated as "milk with dates," sheer khurma is also known as semai in Bangladesh. This sweet vermicelli dessert is an Eid favorite in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. It's prepared with vermicelli, milk, sugar, dates, and, depending on the country, pistachios, almonds, and/or raisins.
3. Lapis legit
This is a multilayer cake which is popular in Indonesia. It is made like a typical cake out of flour, eggs, and butter but with a twist as it contains spices such as cardamom and cloves to add a bit of tingly flavour to it. As it takes a lot of time and effort to prepare the cake that is why it is mostly seen and eaten on special occasions.
This is a desert which is enjoyed by many Bosnians on Eid. It is a dessert made of apples that are stuffed with walnuts and stewed in sweet sugary water to make them taste like candy. It is topped with either whipped cream or syrup.
5. Shahi Tukra
Royal Mughlai dessert of fried sugar syrup coated bread slices, topped and soaked with a fragrant creamy sweet thickened milk or rabri and garnished with dry fruits. This is not only delicious and filling but also a very popular dessert that is had during Iftar.
