Malido is a speciality of ours. Made from pure ingredients with flour, eggs, nutmeg, cardamon and garnished with fried or roasted almonds and raisins. Cherries can be added if desired.

 

Muktad is a very special time to remember our loved ones, who have departed, cherish the ideals they pursued, emulate them in all the good they did and pray for their souls. Over time the pain of loosing them gives way to the joyful memories and we celebrate their lives.

Food cooked for Muktad prayers is kept on a table set aside with the Afargan.

Items like Malido, Daran, Papri for the chasni are prepared. After the prayers are done the food is partaken of with clean hands.
