Eid al-Adha 2018

It’s Tuesday the 21st of August and this year, it means that it is Eid! For Muslims across the globe, this means today marks the end of the month long fast of Ramadan and the start of a great feast that can last up to three whole days in some countries! Many Muslims also use this holiday period to attend communal prayers, listen to a khutba (sermon) and give out charity in the form of food. At Ink N Toner UK we want to make sure our customers have the best Eid possible so we want to give you some suggestions as to what you

Food you can make/try during Eid.

Red Meat

Most Muslims will consume red meat in some capacity, usually lamb, goat or cow. The animal will be divided into three parts, with one part given to the poor, one shared out amongst relatives and the final third cooked and eaten by the family. The meat is often roasted, barbecued or cooked in a curry.

Maqluba

This traditional dish is popular in Middle Eastern countries – it consists of fried vegetables, meat (usually chicken, turkey or lamb) and rice cooked together in a pot which is then flipped upside down to serve as a large savoury cake.

Rice and Couscous

From chicken biryani with saffron and sultanas to apricot-spiked couscous, grain dishes are an essential part of an Eid al-Adha celebration and often served to accompany the stews, tagine and curries.

Bolani

In Afghanistan, Bolani is a popular food during Eid – it consists of flatbread stuffed with an array of fillings, from potatoes to green pepper, and is usually baked or fried to create a thin crust, before being served with yoghurt. Afghanistan Eid celebrations tend to be quite child-focused, and the whole family can enjoy bolani.

As well as that, you could use the inks you buy from from us to print out your own Eid related printables.
