Eid Milad-Un-Nabi 2021: 4 Desserts That Will Complete Your Day

Eid Milad-un-Nabi is celebrated every year in the third month of the Islamic calendar to commemorate the birth anniversary of the holy prophet Muhamad by Muslims all across the globe. On this auspicious day, people dress up in their newest outfits and express their love for Allah and honour this day by uniting with one another through the act of exchanging gifts and treating themselves to a delectable array of sweet and savoury dishes. Of course, you can’t imagine the celebration of Eid without the preparation of signature biryani. At the same time, desserts are a must to end our meals with a delightful treat that can bring us ultimate satisfaction and sate all our sweet cravings. Here are five desserts that will make your day ten times better and joyful.

1. Shahi Tukda 

Shahi tukda is a royal Mughlai dessert with the ultimate melt in the mouth deliciousness, elevating every festival or occasion. Shahi tukda is mainly relished every year on all eid festivals, prepared by frying pieces of bread in ghee dipped in thickened milk, which is flavoured with sugar, kesar, cardamom and nuts. 

2. Sheer Khurma

Sheer khurma is a festive vermicelli pudding that is another decadent dessert to make your eid celebration brighter and sweeter. Sheer khurma is relished after the family is done with offering eid prayers. Sheer khurma is similar to kheer but offers more flavours to our taste buds. It is prepared by simmering condensed milk with ghee and roasted vermicelli and mixed with cardamom, saffron sugar and dates.  

3. Rice Kheer

There isn't any festival celebrated without devouring a creamy bowl of kheer. Kheer is a popular Indian dessert cooked with rice in milk, infused with a touch of myriad flavours to elevate the deliciousness. So treat your guests to this creamy dessert.

4. Knafeh

Knafeh or kunafa is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert that is spongy, creamy and full of irresistible taste and aromatic deliciousness. It is made by a spun pastry soaked in a sugary syrup and topped off with a layer of cheese with an added hint of pistachios. 

Eid Mubarak to everyone. Infuse your life with bliss by enjoying these desserts with friends and family.
