Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated by Muslims worldwide to mark the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramzan. It is celebrated on the first day of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic lunar calendar.

The festival is celebrated by sharing a delightful dish called Seviyan (vermicelli) that comes under different varieties like Hath Ka Seviyan, Nammak Ka Seviyan, Chakle Ka Seviyan and Laddu Seviyan.

All these variants can be used in the dish called Sheerkurma, which is also made on Eid and distributed among friends and relatives.
