While good food is customary for Eid-al-Adha, a celebration of any festival without a dessert is incomplete. Therefore, keeping a sweet dish is a must on a festival day. There is no replacement for having sheer khurma and traditional sewayi on Eid-al-Adha.
However, if you are a fitness enthusiast then it can be extremely hard to sit patiently in a room where everyone else is gorging on delicious dessert, while you keep a track of your calorie intake. If you think you’ll face the same situation, worry not, we bring some of the sugar-free dessert recipes, which will make your day.
It is impossible to imagine Eid without having phirni/kheer on the menu. While phirni is a must-have on this auspicious day, let’s put the mangoes to their best use. Mangoes will not only add the flavour but will also give phirni a subtle sweetness, and honestly, this sugar-free dessert is a real crowd-pleaser. Garnish it with some pistachio and rose to add royalty to the dish.
This is one of the healthiest and easiest dishes to prepare. Apart from being completely sugar-free, the oats kheer is rich in protein and fibre. And when you add a variety of dry fruits, it not only gets rich in appearance but turns into a powerhouse of nutrition. A new trick to apply to this wholesome dish is to cook the milk on low heat and add a few dates, which will avail the sweetness to it.
A dessert without sewayi on Eid-al-Adha is not really a good idea. Therefore, all you need to make Doodh Pheni is milk, sewayi, jaggery, and dry fruits of your choice. Jaggery will make a healthy sugar substitute. Mix all ingredients and cook it till it becomes thick in consistency. Serve it by garnishing several dry fruits on top.
