Eid Al-Fitr, Sweets – 2020

May 24th, 2020

Eid Al-Fitr is the Islamic religious celebration that ends the Holy Month of Ramadan. It is celebrated all around the world, where people families visit, kids are given money, and Eid sweets are served to well-wishers and relatives.
This Eid is different, due to coronavirus pandemic and curfew it won’t be same kind of celebration. There is no family gatherings and visits, but I wanted to keep the spirit of Eid so I made a very small amount of our favorite sweets for my family members.

The Tablecloth is “Aghabani Tablecloth” which is originally made in Syria. Aghabani is a 150 year old Damascene traditional craft. It is made of high quality Syrian cotton, embroidered with gold  / silver / white threads and other colors. It  comes in different designs, sizes and colors with matching napkins. I have one white and maroon, and  I brought this green one from my last visit to Syria.

Eswaret As-Set is kind of baklava known in other countries as “Barma” or “Ush Al-Ghorab”.  The name “Eswaret As-Set” means “Lady’s Bracelet ” or “Lady’s Wristlet”. It is prepared from phyllo dough that is formed to round shape, then melted ghee is added to each piece and baked in the oven. After baking, sugar syrup flavored with orange blossom water is added and the center is filled with crushed pistachios. I made the phyllo dough.
