In line with their tradition, Ahmed and Shehla Jafri are bringing the Largest Eid Festival, running for 10 days this year at two venues in Mississauga. You'll get great shopping deals, food, mehndi, a variety of stalls and entertainment - an all-out family fun. Find more details at Team of Two Events Facebook page. Check it out and mark the dates in your calendar. See you there.

The famous Lahore Tikka House at Gerrard Street, Toronto needs no intro. Visit it if you haven't been there lately. It's the Restaurant in the spotlight in this issue. I went there and loved the food and especially the Kulfi. Thought to share with you.

If you eat Pakoras and then go on a guilt trip, try the guilt-free Baked Pakoras recipe by Chef Anju. It has the same taste with less calories and zero-guilt. See the details below in the featured recipe section.

Last but not the least, get a wholesome platter for Iftar only for $5.99+tax at the Mississauga Grill. That's the Deal on Meal this week

Enjoy,

Featured Recipe
Baked Pakora

Baked Pakora

Pakoras are one of the most popular, most-served Iftar appetizers. Traditionally, these are made with Besan (Gram flour) batter and vegetables like potatoes and onions and are deep fried. Our chef Anju Rajan has converted this delightful appetizer recipe into a healthier one - a recipe for baking pakoras. Baked pokaras are healthy and taste the same. Now you can eat baked pokoras, enjoy and also feel good. So we call it guilt-free! If you are looking to skip all the oil but still get that same delicious flavor, these baked pakora is the way to go...
