Janmashtami is around the corner, and it is the right time to have your snacks game on point. We tell you how.
The festival of Janmashtami marks the birth of the much-loved Lord Krishna who is known for his love for good food. In fact, Chappan Bhog which is typically offered to Krishna includes 56 food preparations prepared with great devotion and immense love. A favourite of course is Kheer that is made with rice, full-cream milk, sugar and loads of dry fruits, flavoured with green cardamom powder, a big favourite in Mathura.
Dahi Vadas can be prepared with Buckwheat flour or raw bananas, dunked in beaten and flavoured curds with loads of fresh pomegranate pearls sprinkled on it. Kalakand can also be prepared by incorporating natural flavours and colours of local, seasonal and organic fruits and vegetables.
