and explain why this meal is important for the occasion.
On different occasions, we eat different special meals and some of the items are very common on such special occasions. One such meal that we often eat on special occasion is the Pilaf (also known as pulao, pilav and polao in some countries), salad and mutton.
We eat this special meal usually at our major festivals like New Year, wedding and different social party. This is a special meal people usually prepare for special occasions and this is widely liked in our country.
The meal is usually served either at lunch or at dinner. People do not have it in the morning as this is a kind of rich food. A special type of rice is used to prepare the pilaf and depending on the local cuisine and custom, fish, vegetables and dried fruits are also added to the rice. The salad is prepared with various kinds of vegetables and fruits and sometimes onions, and special edible oils are added sometimes.
The important on a meal for an occasion mostly depends on the custom and preferences of the people of a geographical region. For hundreds of years, it is a tradition in our country to cook and serve this special meal on special occasions. Another reason why people prefer to eat this meal on a special occasion is that it is very much delicious and the ingredients required for preparing for this menu is available in our country.
