Bakrid, also known as Id-ul-Zuha, is quite a significant festival for the Muslim community. The word ‘Eid’ is derived from the Arabic language, meaning ‘festival’ and the word Zuha comes from Uzhaiyya, meaning ‘sacrifice’. Also known as Eid-ul-Adha in Arabic, fragrant food is an essential part of this festival, and aromatic and mildly spiced methi murgh is one of the recipes enjoyed during this festival in India. It can be paired with any Indian bread of choice, from roti to naan and even goes well with rice.
