Celebrating Raksha Bandhan today.

Raksha bandhan is a Hindu festival that celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters.

It is called Rakhi in many parts of India.
The festival falls on the full moon day of the Shravan month. On this day sisters tie a rakhi ( sacred thread) on her brother’s wrist. This symbolizes the sisters love and prayer for her brother’s well-being and the brother’s lifelong vow to protect her.

So on this auspicious day we have to make some sweet dish.
Made my brother’s favourite rice pudding or rice kheer today.
A rich creamy dessert made of rice and milk.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
