Eid al-Fitr in Indonesia is always celebrated with tasty foods! So, what have you eaten today?

Indonesians love chicken opor (braised chicken in coconut milk) also spicy fried potato & liver, and many more.


Tonight’s session is about Eid al-Fitr in some countries. Not just the food, but also traditions and rituals.

Eid al-Fitr is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan.

The Turkish authorities declared a nine-day public holiday starting from July 2 for Eid al-Fitr.

In Egypt, bakers prepare “Kahk”, a traditional Egyptian food filled with honey & nuts.


In London, Eid al-Fitr is celebrated in Trafalgar Square. It features live entertainment, stalls, and children’s activities.

Like Indonesians, the Malaysians also do ‘open-houses’ at every residence to welcome friends & families during Eid al-Fitr.

Eid al-Fitr is not a public holiday in Australia. However, many Islamic businesses & organizations may alter their business hours.

India, Pakistan, Iran, and Bangladesh have traditional dishes to celebrate Eid. For breakfast: sweet dishes, including Sheer Khurma,a dish made by cooking saviyaan (a local form of long pasta) with dates.

Whatever you eat during Eid al-Fitr. Eat festively! Diet (always) starts tomorrow, right? ;)
That’s all we can share for tonight’s #EngKnowledge. Again, #EidMubarak, please forgive all our wrongdoings. *hugs*
