Guest Post : Beef Shami Kebab ( Minced Beef Meat Cutlets ) from Lubna of Yummy Food

Eid-ul-Adha ( Feast of the Sacrifice ) is celebrated by Muslims all over the world to commemorate the willingness of Hazrat Ibrahim ( A. S. ) to obey Allah's ( God's ) command to sacrifice his son Hazrat Ismail ( A. S. ), before Allah intervened and provide Hazrat Ibrahim ( A. S. ) with a ram to sacrifice instead. Now Muslims sacrifice an animal ( usually a goat , sheep , cow or camel ) every year during Eid-ul-Adha to keep fresh the memory of that great sacrifice. The meat from the sacrifice is divided into three equal parts; one third for the family, one third for relatives / friends / neighbours and one third for the poor and needy.

While Eid is just around the corner, I thought to invite few bloggers friends to guest post here and share their favorite recipes for Eid-ul-Adha.

Today, I'm excited to be featuring a guest post from Lubna of " Yummy Food ". Most of you would be already familiar with her blog which is full of delicious recipes and stunning pictures. When I requested her to do a guest post for my blog with some traditional Eid-ul-Adha recipe, she promptly responded with this yummy recipe. Let's see what she has to share with us!

On Eid or special occasions, we get a lot of mithai ( South Asian sweets ) including Burfi. Usually, we freeze the Burfi for later use in Kheer / Firni, Gajar Halwa or Zarda. But this time, I tried something new; a delicious, rich and refreshing frozen treat from it. It was a great hit :)
