Happy Eid from our iCook Family!
Eid Al-Adha is a religious islamic holiday celebrating the act of Qurbani (sacrifice) and completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage done by muslims each year. It is the larger Eid celebration of the two Eid festivities, the other one being Eid-ul-Fitr which is celebrated at the end of the holy month of Ramadan (fasting). Eid Al-Adha can last between 2-4 days and is celebrated with carrying out Eid Prayers at a local mosque during the morning time.
This celebration is all about spending time together with friends and family, wearing our best clothes, giving gifts to one another, and enjoying tons of delicious food and yummy desserts!
This is a wonderful opportunity for our children to learn more about and take part in different cultures and cooking experiences. Our little chefs will be delighted to excite their taste buds and further master their cooking skills!
While there are a variety of desserts eaten during Eid Al Adha, below is a famous dessert called Kheer most often made that we absolutely love! We hope you enjoy making them with your family and join us to celebrate Eid together! :)
