2 Makar Sankranti recipes from the Maharashtrian kitchen
Celebrations for Makar Sankranti begin on Saturday with fun family get togethers and harvest feasts. In Maharashtrian homes, a special dish named bhogi chi bhaji, loosely translates as vegetables for feast, will be prepared on that day. The seasons’s freshest produce, like brinjal, carrots and peas, go into this special dish flavoured with jaggery, tamarind and coconut. Then there’s the ubiquitous sesame laddoo, or til gud laddoo, without which celebrations are incomplete.
