The date of Eid al-Adha varies every year in the Gregorian calendar, and this year, it will be celebrated on July 10. Every festival worldwide mainly involves celebrations with food and lots of food, and Eid is no different. Be it robust curries to scrumptious kebabs or decadent sewaiyan, and Eid brings with it a platter full of deliciousness that no one can escape.
