This year I had no excuses but to get into the Eid spirit and dabble into some biscuit (kahk) making which is custom.
Eid marks the end of Ramadan which was month of fasting from dawn to sunset each day. What would happen usually is you would meet a lot of family and close friends to celebrate during this time. Traditionally, each family would bake biscuits and as a way of respect and unity you would share them amongst the community.
I love the idea of keeping such traditions alive in addition to giving myself a challenge! I’m breaking the stereotype of the idea the second generation loses traditions – I like this one and will keep it going!
Although these aren’t the traditional kahk biscuits – they are my favorite from my childhood!
