We never had a ramadhan food thread this year!

Here's a chicken biryani I made. This was my second attempt at biryani. It turned out nice.

I have the recipe written down if anyone wants it.

The recipe is from friend who learnt it from his mother. His mother is from Karachi. Father Gujarati. The end result is very similar to how my aunties make it. So maybe it's Gujarati style so might look different to you. Saying that I had very similar biryani in Karachi cafes.

I guess it looks different because you didn't add the food colour.

Yes, I didn't have any saffron. I would never use artificial colouring. The whole dish you see there is 100% organic. Even the spices are organic.

My youngest son made this fully organic chocolate cake. Apart from the chocolate topping the rest of the cake is sugar free. Only sweetener used is organic honey.

What dish is special on Eid at your place.

Here in Deccan India, sheer khorma/doodh khorma.

We use more of milk and less vermicelli/sewayya , and it is very much liquid like juice

I know many other parts of India use more vermicelli and less milk , it looks somewhat thick.

This is how Indian Gujaratis do it. Hot milky drink with raisins, nuts, vermicelli. That's what Gujaratis call kheer. Traditionally drank on Eid morning after Eid salaat.

Eid lunch at my house is home made chicken burgers and fries! Everything is home made including the buns, the chillie sauce, everything. Alhamdulillah everything is organic as well. This is what my kids choose for Eid lunch every year lol.
