5 Must-have dishes in Mumbai to celebrate Eid

17 Aug, 2018 by Mini Ribeiro


Food is an integral part of Indian festivals and Eid is no exception. This ‘festival of sacrifice’ also referred to as Eid-ul-Adha, is a day of celebrations. Meat is divided into 3 parts; one is kept for family consumption, the second part for friends and the third, for the needy. On this day, several delicacies are prepared at home and shared with their friends and relatives. The festival Bakra-Id is celebrated all over Mumbai with much enthusiasm. One can even step into restaurants and relish some of the meat delicacies and sweets, synonymous with this festival. Several places in Mumbai offer a wide range to choose from. My top 5 picks in Mumbai.
