Eid-ul-Fitr is the time for celebration, joy and happiness. It comes after a month long period of fasting and lasts for three days. It is the high time when families get together in merry making activities and planning trips. Everyone gets to wear new clothes they bought especially for this day. Girls put on henna and wear multi-colored bangles while boys either wear the traditional Shalwar Kameez or stay casual in shirt and jeans. But! What good is an Eid without special and tasty food?
Here is a list of top 10 Eid dishes which you should try:
1) Chicken Biryani
One does not simply celebrate Eid without biryani! Biryani is the foremost thing to eat to commemorate any celebration. So, how can there be no biryani at Eid?!
2) Chicken Karahi
