‘Meethi Eid’ (sweet Eid) is just around the corner, and everyone is busy making their goodbyes to the holy month of Ramazan and preparing for the upcoming festivities. I had always wondered why we call this Eid meethi, and my curiosity led me to my dadi, who told me that it’s a sweet gift from Allah to all Muslims that have been fasting for an entire month.

I have no doubt that in every household, the day starts with the mothers getting up early in the morning and making an abundance of meetha, usually kheer or saviyan.

This year, why not try your hand at making something new? Try some of our recipes below:

Creme Brule

It’s rich, it’s creamy, and it tastes absolutely amazing. It’ll definitely be a hit with guests as well as the family. It’s always good to serve something unique a times, so skip the usually kheer and saviyan and make some Creme Brule with a crunchy caramel layer on top.

Sticky Date Pudding

Ramazan may be nearing it’s end, but we aren’t done with the yumminess of dates. Dates are usually not experimented with much, and are usually reserved for breaking fasts. But, what if we were to tell you that you can make the most amazing pudding using them?

Beetroot Halwa

This dessert not only looks divine, it’s also super tasty. The aroma of the cardamom is just the perfect touch, with the earthiness of beetroot. Trust us,  Beetroot Halwa will definitely be the star at your dining table.

Caramel Pudding

Well, this one has been around for ages. I remember begging my mother to make Caramel Pudding, a favorite of both kids and adults. There are never any leftovers with this one. It is, and always will be, an absolute hit. Though you may be tempted to make one out of the readily available mixes in the market, I strongly suggest you make the pudding from scratch using our recipe. It’s super easy!

Amina Mazhar

Ever since I was a kid, eating has been a hobby. Once I grew up, I started stepping into the kitchen more often. Although I love to cook everything but baking is something I am very passionate about. Its my therapy and it definitely takes me to my happy place. Ofcourse, this hobby of mine also caters to my hyper sweet tooth as well, which is an added bonus. Because baking is something that I have learnt from my mother so it has a very emotional value for me. Since times immemorial I have seen my mom experiment with baking in the kitchen, I like to believe she has passed that skill on to me as well (I know i can never surpass her awesomeness).
