Bihari Boti

Eid Ul Adha honours the willingness of prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice is first born son Ismail as an act of submission to Allah's command and his son's acceptance of being sacrificed, before Allah intervened to provide a lamb to be sacrificed instead.

Eid ul Adha is celebrated on the 10th day of the last Islamic month of the year 'Zul Hijjah'
We, Muslims, do our part by sacrificing goats, cows, camels, or lambs.

This year my father got 3 goats and a cow.

For Bihari boti you'd need
2 kgs of Beef/Mutton/chicken (cut in small cubes or strips) I used Beef.
3-4 tbsp of yogurt
3-4 tbsp raw papaya paste with skin (or 2 tbsp of meat tenderizer powder)
1 tbsp red chili powder
1 tbsp red chili flakes
1 tbsp all spice powder (garam masala)
1-2 tbsp mustard oil
1 tbsp Chat masala
1 tsp ground cumin
1 heaped tbsp of bihari boti masala 
1 large onion sliced, browned and crushed.
1 tbsp of ginger garlic paste

Marinate beef (or any other meat you're using) in all the above ingrediants for 6-7 hours.

Add the marinated meat to 2-3 tbsp of oil. Cook till the meat is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently.
When its cooked, add about 1 tbsp of lemon juice and green chilies. Mix.

Serve immediately with onion rings and lemon wedges on top.
