5 Sweets To Try This Bakhri Eid

As the Muslim community across the globe celebrates Bakhri Eid, we all know that they call it Salty Eid. The simple reason being, food in this celebration is based on the kind and sort of animal they slaughter. Meat, beef or lamb – are kept on the top list of the Bakhri Eid menu.

However no celebration completes without the presence of sweets. At the end of all the savories and spices you consume, a gulp of sweet simply tantalizes the taste buds. Hence no Muslim spread during Bakhri Eid goes devoid of sweets.

In fact there are sweets that the Muslims limit to to Eid-Ul-Adha celebration only. The list of desserts differs in case of Eid-Ul-Fitr.

Here are the top 5 sweet preparations that you cannot miss during Bakhri Eid. Break into a Muslim friend, neighbor or colleagues house to relish this range of desserts that will make you crave for more.

Popular confectionaries now prepare the same items and put them for people to buy. You can try your luck there as well.

A multi layered pastry filled with nuts and raisins served with a topping of thick sweet sauce or honey. Fillings of Baklava vary from country to country. Iranians like it with pistachios and almonds while in Levant, walnut is the choice. In recent times, culinary experts are adding dates and choco chips to render new kinds of Baklava. It might be expensive but a big miss if you wait for some other time.

Many mistake ‘Kaju Halwa’ to be the popular Indian dessert, Kaju Barfi. It’s an absolute misconcept. The Kaju Halwa that Muslims prepare during Bakhri Eid is a pudding composed of only cashew, sugar and milk. It can be served both hot and cold. Cashew nuts are used to garnish this dish. It’s a heavy sweet that can be kept in the fridge for long to relish and recall the Eid memories.

Blue Frog —Mehrauli, Delhi

My love for music is deep rooted into my childhood days… It started with nodding my head to Preeti Sagar’s Nursery Rhymes to my mother’s singing and has grown into trying my best not to miss any concerts and live shows happening in town! Blue Frog in Mehrauli, Delhi has always been very close to my heart!

Last week, I spent quite some time with friends here in Blue Frog and witnessed, experienced and enjoyed one of the best nights of excellent musical brilliance by a show of Anne Paceo, the drummer and musician of French Jazz. Yokai and Triphase are her bands…

Blue Frog literally offers a complete experience with all the music, great food and drinks. I ordered my favourite beer, which is, fortunately or unfortunately, Tuborg Strong! I have no explanation as to why I love its flavour and texture! Plus, even after four full bottles, the next day has been fresh and clean, without hangovers! What more one asks of a bottle of booze?

My friends and I settled for a great spot and we ordered plates of Garlic Pepper Shrimp, Hot Crispy Chicken Chaat, Kerala Tenderloin Chili Fry, Homemade Cheese Balls, Mixed Seafood Platter, Cold Cut Pizza and ended with Panna cotta and Tiramisu. One of us ordered an apple pie I think! Blue Frog is known to serve finger food mostly but eat it by the loads; it is a better dinner than full-fledged main courses! But don’t get scared at the quantity of food, we were 8 people and 5 were boys! I guess, that explains the ‘how’ behind all that we devoured!

The ambiance of Blue Frog is also quite amazing. State-of –art music systems, effective lighting that influences you, the strange yet sporty sponge like sitting holes and the comfort it offers to you as a customer is by far the best!

I would recommend you to get a reservation though because the shows are so classy, people often have to stand and watch the whole time. I did mine from www.bookyourtable.com… Called in at 076767 76767 for a reservation. They did a good job. Enjoy yourself!
