Sevai Kheer Recipe
Vermicelli cooked in milk and dry fruits. Made in every household on the occasion of Eid.
Eid al-Fitr literally means ‘The Festival of Breaking the Fast’. It is also known as the ‘The Sugar Feast’ or ‘The Sweet Festival’. It marks the end of Ramadan, the holy month of fasting. For the first time in several years Eid-ul-Fitr has fallen on a Friday adding more value to this auspicious day.
No celebration is complete without some good eats. Create a sumptuous spread with lots of joy, pomp, love and a few festive flavors.
