The Weekly Round Up #1 (Eid Special)

Weekly Round Up


I’m back today with a new feature on the blog. I’m always on the internet looking for new recipes to try out and experiment with, so I thought I’d start doing a weekly curation of my favourite blogger recipes. As Eid is just around the corner, I thought to make this first Weekly Round Up an Eid Special. So here are 5 blogger recipes I’ve found which I think would be perfect for Eid al Adha this September, as well as some cute Eid products I found on Etsy. 

5 Blogger Recipes 


  1. Qalb El Louz by Halal Home Cooking – The Queen of Algerian Desserts, that is often reserved for special holidays such as Eid.
  2. Keema Biryani by This Muslim Girl Bakes – If you’re like me and are just getting over fears of making Biryani yourself from scratch, then this is the blog to follow. 
  3. Chicken Kabsa by Coffee and Crumpets – If you’re looking for a more Middle Eastern style rice dish, check out Nazneen’s recipe. 
  4. Illish Pualo by Khadiza’s Kitchen – A popular Bangladeshi dish using the national fish. Great if you’re looking for an alternative to meat or chicken. 
  5. Mixed Vegetable Pakoras by Fatima Cooks – Who doesn’t love a pakora? These would make a great quick snack during Eid celebrations.

Check out my Chicken Pilau and Rasmalai recipes, both would make ideal additions to the table for Eid.


5 Etsy Finds

  1. Gourmet Filled Medjool Dates 24 piece assortment – This assortment of stuffed dates are presented in a lovely box that would make a great gift for your guests or hosts on Eid.
  2. Brocade Fabric Gift Money Envelopes – Receiving the Eidy money is something many kids look forward to (this blogger sure did!) . Why not pretty it up a little but with these beautiful money envelopes.
  3. Alhamdulillah for Tea Mug – A cute gift for tea drinkers. There’s also a coffee version in their Etsy shop.
  4. My Favourite Duas Notebook – A super cute notebook for stationery lovers. There’s also a Ramadan Recipes notebook in their Etsy Store too which I have been eyeing up!
  5. Eid Mubarak Card by Ya Ya Cards – Not an Etsy link, but you can buy these cute Islamic greetings cards from this UK based designer through their Facebook or Instagram page. 


And that’s it for the weekly round up! If you are an Etsy store or business interested in being featured in the next Weekly Round up, contact me at

      You’re very welcome, Nazneen! Kabsa is one Middle Eastern Dish I have wanted to try out for so long, and what’s great (for the sake of my family) is that it seems a little similar to Asian rice dishes. I will let you know if I try it out!
