Indian Easter

Easter for my family is Mums Chicken Biryani ( a spicy layered dish of rice and chicken curry baked in 1 pot) served with a Raita of yoghurt, tomatoes, onions , cucumber and coriander leaves. There's never room for dessert.

Easter breakfast-- any fresh pork, fried, 2 boiled eggs, baked or boiled potato, mash up potato and egg together, pour some of the oil left from pork over potato and egg, add salt and pepper and eat with pork. This is very good to me.

Ham again

Easter dinner means ham with a brown sugar glaze, candied sweet potatoes and green bean casserole at my house. I switch up the dessert depending on what I feel like making. Can't wait for ham sandwiches the next day...YUMO!!

Favourite Easter dishes

For me it starts with sliced spring radishes on well-buttered dark bread; clear beet borscht with no meat and garnished with dill, sour cream, cold potatoes, and hard-cooked egg; Baby lamb, roasted with rosemary

Easter dinner

For our family it's Ham, Kielbasa (both fresh and smoked) sourkraut, potato salad, hard boiled eggs and cheesecake. Yum! Sometimes "sledja" (herring)

According to your outstanding recipes!

Thank you very much! Please stay in the course! Bye!

Lamb tops my list

Lamb has always been on our table for Easter. It is usually roasted with baby new potatoes, carrots, and onions. We also usually pick up hot cross buns from the bakery because I am too lazy to bake them! Of course, there are the hard-boiled eggs which inevitably get turned into deviled eggs. --CG
