Hiba Nawab, playing the role of Elaichi on Sony SAB’s Jijaji Chhat Per Hain, shares her memories and favourites from the festival of Eid.
Talking about her favourite dish for Eid, she says, “My favourite dish is absolutely Haleem Biryani, during Eid. Also, aloo and channa chaat is something that I drool over. Basically, everything that my mom cooks is my favourite and the specialty of Eid for me. I enjoy cooking rice pudding for myself and I think I’m pretty good at it. I also love feeding my close ones with it, hoping they love it as much as I do.”
Ask about her Eid celebrations, she adds, “I usually celebrate Eid with my family and friends and my mom cooks a lot of different kinds of dishes. So, it’s all about eating a lot after fasting for 30 days straight and of course followed by Ibaadad to thank God for everything!”
Sharing her fondest memory of celebrating Eid from her childhood, “It is always going to be my Nani giving us Eidi and how as kids, we used to compare and compete amongst each other over our Eidis. That was one of the best times growing up.”
On an ending note, she says, “I would like to wish all my fans a Happy Eid. Enjoy all the delicacies and no need to diet; just follow the Eat and Greet mantra!”
Happy Eid to you, Hiba!!
