Kalamro – Eid e Milad

Eid e Milad or Milad un Nabi is Prophet Mohammed’s birthday. It is an occasion of mixed emotions, as on this day Prophet Mohammed was not only born but he also passed away after a few years. The Milad falls on 12th of Rabi ul Awwal, an Islamic month and mostly its a joyous affair than a mourning period. Throughout the month Bohras celebrate by making a special sweet called Kalamro.

eid e milad recipe

Kalamro is a rice and curd based dish which is served chilled topped with a variety of nuts and garnished typically with pomegranate seeds and rose petals.  In my opinion, it is the most humble of all the celebration desserts which is so easy to make and that lends ample of nutrition at the same time. Nabeel likes eating curd and so Kalamro is made often at home. This is one sweet which you shouldn’t shy away from making and serving your kids. It is lip-smacking and given its goodness is highly recommended for children.
