Eid-ul-Adha will soon be here. It is celebrated to honour Ibrahim, who, in his devotion to Allah was ready to sacrifice his own son when called upon to do so. This is a day is also known as the Feast of Sacrifice, where families make an animal sacrifice, especially of one that has been reared for a while at home and a feast prepared. This is shared with friends and family, with the primary idea that no one should be hungry on this day. This year, will celebrations being a bit toned down, most sacrifices are being performed with generous donations going to flood afflicted victims from money set aside for Eid. And, since food is something that unites us all, here are some of the stand-out dishes that form part of the feast that you simply must have and 5 restaurants that you can find it at in Bangalore.

Sure, there are variations in spellings and presentation, but here is where you can have it:
Lamb shanks, slow cooked to fall off the bone goodness. Who would not want to spend some leisurely time with this dish? Here is where you can:

Kubani ka Meetha
This slow-cooked apricot dessert comes in a variety of textures and levels of sweetness. I personally prefer the not too sweet, a tinge of sourness and a deep dark brown colour to mine. Here is where you can get some.
