For Eid al-Fitr, we suggest taking a traditional BBQ menu and giving it a festive twist. Start with some classic dishes like grilled chicken and beef kebabs, and then add in some Middle Eastern flavours like za'atar seasoning and pomegranate molasses. Serve them alongside some fresh salads, hummus, and pitta bread, and you have a delicious Eid al-Fitr feast.
3. Set the Scene: Decorate your outdoor space with festive Eid decorations like colorful lanterns, balloons, and streamers. You can also set up a separate area for kids with games and activities to keep them entertained.
4. Drinks: A refreshing drink is a must-have at any BBQ. Consider serving some homemade lemonade or iced tea, or try a traditional Eid drink like Rooh Afza.
5. Desserts: No celebration is complete without something sweet. Serve some classic Eid desserts like sheer khurma, baklava, or ras malai.
