Eid is almost here and with that comes the planning of all those Eid get-togethers! Whether you’re sacrificing a bakra (goat) or a gaaye (cow) for Eid, there’s only one thing on everyone’s mind — utilizing all that meat in the most delicious manner possible (the third that’s left after distribution among relatives and the needy, of course).
As far as we’re concerned, there are only two kinds of people during the ‘Meaty Eid’. The first like to get their hands dirty and revel in the cooking process, while the second LOVE eating all that delicious barbecue but absolutely loathe the work that comes with it. If you belong to the latter, then this post is for you!

Hanifia are known as the “pioneers in hunter beef”, but they also make some kick-ass ‘raan’, or lamb leg roast. This father-son duo started their food business back in 1898 in Shimla, India. After partition, they shifted and settled in Karachi. If there’s one thing that stands out in all of the items on their menu, it’s their unique blend of spices.
