Today marks two milestones, my 1st Blogoversary & 100th post. Can't believe a year has passed! This blog was started exactly a year ago, just to keep record of all my tried & tested recipes. It has become my passion now and I really enjoy it. In this blogging journey, I have met so many kind blogging friends who who have always been encouraging me through their lovely comments. I enjoy reading every single one. Thank you all for being so supportive! Hope you will continue your support :)

To celebrate my blogoversary & my 100th post, I wanted to make something sweet & special. These lamingtons are my all-time favorite. The cake itself is quite soft & moist. After dipping in syrup, they would be more moist and melt in your mouth. And with the coconut, they tastes like a piece of heaven. So here goes the recipe:

Eid al-Adha Mubarak & Sheer Khurma

Pin It

Eid al-Adha or "Festival of Sacrifice" is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Hazrat Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Hazrat Isma'il as an act of obedience to Allah, before Allah intervened to provide him with a sheep— to sacrifice instead. On this day, those Muslims who can afford, sacrifice their best domestic animals as a symbol of Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his only son. The meat from the sacrificed animal is divided into three parts. The family retains one third of the share; another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and the other third is given to the poor and needy. ( Source )

Sheer Khurma is a traditional Muslim festive breakfast & Eid's special dessert, prepared in South Asian countries especially Pakistan. It is served on the morning of Eid day in the family after the Eid prayer as breakfast, and throughout the day to all the visiting guests. It is a sweet vermicelli soup. Sheer Khurma was originally a Mughal-Afghan dish, imported to Mughal-India. Sheer means sweetened milk and khurma is made from dried dates. ( Source )
