1. SPICY LAMB CHOPS BY MAZADAAR
Eid feels incomplete without a side of juicy, tender lamb chops. This quick and easy recipe is perfect to curb your spicy chops cravings. You can make these on an outdoor grill or inside on your stovetop.


2. BIHARI KEBABS BY POTSNCURRIES
The moment I laid eyes on these mouth-watering Bihari Kebabs on Fatima's Instagram I knew this recipe was making my Eid Roundup. Thin fillets of meat are coated in a spicy marinade and mustard oil. All these ingredients come together to create an exotic flavour.


3. SHAMI KEBAB BY PAKISTANEATS
Shami Kebabs are pure comfort food for me. I find them so versatile and a party must-have. They go so well with everything which is why they are ideal for your Eid table.


4. INSTANT POT NIHARI BY TEAFORTURMERIC
With all the Eid preps, it feels quite intimidating to spend so much effort on a slow-cook Nihari. So why not, try Izzah's Insant Pot Beef Stew which takes only 30 mins of prep and does not compromise on the authentic flavour.


5. KALEJI FRY BY RECIPE52
If you find making kaleji (liver) daunting then Maryam has got you covered with her step-by-step recipe and tips and tricks to master the art of making Kaleji Fry.

Who doesn't love juicy Kofta Aloo (Meatballs with Potato)? Adorn your Eid ul Adha table by this delicious meatballs recipe by Shazia.


7. ROGHNI NAAN BY CHILITOCHOC
Why get them from the store when you can make them at home? These homemade, tandoor-style naan come out fabulous everytime! All you need is a few staple ingredients and an oven to bake them.


8. LAMB PULAO BY FATIMACOOKS
She surely is the goddess of pulaos in my opinion. On her website you can find all kinds of pulao recipes along with a detailed article on perfecting your pulao rice. But for now, definitely check out her mouth-watering Lamb Pulao.


9. PUNJABI BIRYANI BY FLOURANDSPICE
I cannot imagine a festive occasion without Biryani, can you? Biryani is king of the table. And Sarah's 'Pakistani Punjabi Biryani with a Twist' is a life changer with its special smokey aroma.


10. SHEER KHURMA BY MIRCHITALES
A traditional Eid dessert, this rich and creamy vermicelli sweet is made in thickened milk along with nuts and dates. Check out Kiran's detailed recipe and try her super yum Sheer Khurma this Eid!


11. RAS MALAI CAKE BY BLENDOFSPICE
Zakiya is the queen of fusion cooking. And in this recipe she combines the classic Pakistani Ras Malai (milk dumplings) with the soft and fluffy Angel Food Cake. A combo not to be missed!


12. MANGO FALOODA WITH RABRI BY SAVORYANDSWEETFOOD
Beat the heat and celebrate this Eid with this refreshing mango ice cream dessert! If you haven't had falooda yet, you are so missing out on life.


13. ZARDA BY THISMUSLIMGIRLBAKES
Another very traditional Pakistani dish, Zarda is sweet coloured rice made with raisin and/or nuts. It is made with only a handful of ingredients and yet packs a punch of flavour.

And if you are not a red meat eater, as I wasn't a few years back then I have two wonderful chicken recipes for you...


14. BUTTER CHICKEN BY CHILLIANDCAKES
Faiza posts the recipe of this glorious Butter Chicken that is sinfully rich and creamy. And her dark, moody photography does justice to this beautiful dish.


15. TANDOORI CHICKEN BY ROOKIEIWITHACOOKIE
I don't know what I couldn't handle more, Izza's Tandoori Chicken description or the juicy pictures. I love a good restaurant-style chicken roast and this chicken is making my mouth water.

So are you guys all set for Bakra Eid now?
