Eid al-Adha is a festival celebrated among the Muslim community all over the world in remembrance of the sacrifice that Prophet Ibrahim made due to his strong faith in Allah.
To mark this particular part of the period, Muslim families and communities across the world will be partaking in a number of treats.
Here, we share an Eid milk recipe to be enjoyed along with the feast of goodies that will be prepared during this time.
Rumaanah of the Pompom Cooks website shared a recipe for Eid milk, stating “The unmistakable smell of sweet, fragrant milk coming from my daddyma’s (grandma’s) kitchen in the morning was the surest sign that it was Eid day.”
She describes the treat as sweetened milk steeped in browned vermicelli, heaps of toasted nuts and coconut, rosewater, condensed milk, sometimes raisins or dates and of course, a load of warming spices.
According to Rumaanah, this drink is traditionally enjoyed on the morning of Eid day to kick off festivities and tastes like a treat, breakfast drink/dessert and special nightcap all at the same time.
