We the children are asked to keep an eye on these as they can be snatched away by crows, cats, dogs, or even eagles. These marinated strips of meat are laid for sun bath for 2-3 days until meat gets harder and then these are neatly packed in sterilized air-tight containers. These can be stored for 4-6 months. All you have to do is to take out required amount of these and deep fry in oil till they turn good brown in color and relish. Now and then keeping these dried strips under good sun light increases shelf life of these dried Kebab’s. My Grand Maa packs these in zip lock bags to everyone before leaving along with pickles and papads.
My Grand Maa has made an tradition at home…where the new bride of the family has to cook something sweet for the family members and every one has to taste it and reward her with gifts and blessings…Keeping this tradition going on…last year, my dear Bhabhi (wife of brother) who had spent most of her school and college days in Dubai has come up with an extremely flavoursome recipe of Saffron Mousse….to my amazement everyone appreciated the recipe and applauded her….When I asked her the recipe, waiting to fill my bowl for the second serving…she graciously gave me the recipe along with tips…
Eid-ul-Adha (‘festival of Sacrifice’), also known as the Greater Eid, is the second most important festival in the Muslim calendar. It is called as Bakrid/Bakreed in India as Bakra means goat and Id means festival…Eid-ul-Adha celebrates the occasion when Allah appeared to Ibrahim in a dream and asked him to sacrifice his son Ismail as an act of obedience to God. The devil tempted Ibrahim by saying he should disobey Allah and spare his son. As Ibrahim was about to kill his son, Allah stopped him and gave him a lamb to sacrifice instead. The festival remembers the prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son when God ordered him to.
Wishing you Happy and Blessed Eid-ul-Adha….Eid Mubarak! Please remember me in your prayers….
