The menu is as much an integral part of Eid celebrations as the ritual and customs. It’s very much an integral part of the Eid-ul-Adha celebrations. Every Muslim family takes great care to prepare the exclusive dishes on Eid-ul-Adha. The idea is to make the menu over-the-top and include foods which are not regularly eaten.
1 Litre Milk
2 Tbsp Charoli Fried
1/2 Cup Sugar Saffron
1/2 Cup Vermicelli1 Tsp Cardamom Powder
1/4 Cup Almonds Blanched Fried Ground
1 Tsp Oil Or Ghee
1/4 Cup Pistas Fried And Ground
Directions: Cook the milk and sugar. When the milk boils, add the vermicelli and cook for 5 more minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients. Cook for a further 5 minutes. Serve hot or cold.
1 cup Carnation Milk Powder
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tablespoons butter -melted
Whole milk just enough to make the dough
For the Sugar Syrup
2 cups Sugar
1 cup water
Oil for frying
Make the dough by combining the milk powder, Bisquick, butter. Add just enough whole milk to make a medium-hard dough. Divide the dough into 18-20 portions. Make balls by gently rolling each portion between your palms into a smooth ball. Place the balls on a plate. Cover with a damp yet dry kitchen towel. Heat the oil on high and then lower the heat to medium. Slip in the balls into the hot oil from the side of the pan, one by one. They will sink to the bottom of the pan, but do not try to move them. Instead, gently shake the pan to keep the balls from browning on just one side. After about 5 mins, the balls will rise to the surface. The Gulab Jamuns should rise slowly to the top if the temperature is just right. Now they must be gently and constantly agitated to ensure even browning on all sides. If the temperature of the oil is too high then the gulab jamuns will tend to break. So adjust the temperature to ensure that the gulab jamuns do not break or cook too quickly. The balls must be fried very slowly under medium temperatures. This will ensure complete cooking from inside and even browning.
