With the holy month of Ramadan ending this weekend, preparations for Eid ul-Fitr are on in full swing across Mumbai. And while you ensure you've got the best of gifts for your family and friends, home chefs across the city are working towards creating a lavish, homely feast to save you time and effort. Think aromatic biryani, crunchy meat samosas, melt-in-mouth kebabs, and many more lip-smacking age-old recipes to make your Eid ul-Fitr meal memorable.
Scroll through our list of recommended home chefs who are serving Eid-special meals and ensure you’ve pre-ordered your feast in time.
1. Ammeez Kitchen
Shabana Salauddin Gajjar’s Ammeez Kitchen is popular for serving lesser-known Konkani Muslim delicacies. This Eid, the home chef’s specials include an elaborate assortment of vegetarian and non-vegetarian kebabs and fritters, dips/sauces, and traditional desserts. The spread is a combination of traditional and fusion treats, and we recommend the shikari naan, broast chicken, Shikhampuri (chicken or meat), malai phirni, and kokum chutney.
