Til Ki Barfi : Lohri or Sankranthi Special Recipe

5 Special Dishes To Make For Lohri | Sankranti Special

Makar Sankranti (the sun entering the Capricorn) is an important festival all over India. Here are 5 ideas for special dishes to prepare on Sankranti and Lohri

Lohri is a harvest festival which is celebrated in Punjab . The same festival has different names all over India. In TamilNadu it is called Pongal, in Bihar it is celebrated in the form of khichdi, Bihu in Assam, Bhogi in Andhra Pradesh, whereas in Himachal Pradesh and Haryana it is called Maghi.

Significance of Lohri

Basically Lohri is a harvest festival. It is celebrated with great fervor as the previous crop produce is at home and new crop has been sown in the fields. It is a matter of great joy for the farmers whose entire life revolves around fields and farming. It marks the middle of a winter season too. A day before Makar Sankranti huge bonfire is lit in the evening  and yields from the field in the form of groundnuts, sesame seeds, puffed rice etc are offered in the bonfire followed by distributing delicacies made from the nuts and new jaggery. It is also marked by performing gidda and bhangra –the traditional dance of the region.

In other parts of India the following day is celebrated by cooking Pongal and khichdi . Pongal is also made in jaggery juice as well and is called sakkarai Pongal or bellam pongal. In the eastern parts curd and chivda or flattened rice (poha) is also consumed. Khichdi is cooked and distributed among friends and relatives. kite flying is also associated with this day and in fact a kite festival is organized in Gujarat this day. In the ganga belt bathing in the river is considered auspicious on this day.

Following below are some recipes which are cooked specially for this day.

Christmas Cookie Recipes

Christmas Cookie Recipes For This Festive Season

Christmas cookie recipes are a must addition to your baking list. These Christmas cookie recipes are easy to make and will be loved by your kids.

Christmas is an yearly festival which commemorates the birth of Lord Jesus Christ . It is observed on 25th Of December every year. Though it is a celebration Of the Christian community with time it has become a celebration which is not limited to any particular community. People across races and nationalities come together and celebrate it With great joy. When we were kids I remember faintly that our neighboring aunties used to send Christmas goodies in the form of cakes, cookies, chocolates and fruits. They used to erect a Christmas tree at home and have wonderful celebrations. Christmas cookie recipes have a special place in all of these.

My childhood and Christmas cookie recipes

The variety of cookies they used to distribute used to be homemade in most of the cases. They used to start baking them  a a few days before Christmas and it used to be fun watching the aunties bake them together . My favorite ones were Ajwain cookies. Whenever we had the option to buy biscuits I used to  buy them from the nearest shop . The sweet, salty and  buttery taste is so delicious that you can’t resist eating them.They are perfect with a cup of hot tea . Apart from the above, another favorite one was cardamom flavoured coconut cookies. The chewy grated coconut in those Christmas cookie recipes, was very delicious and we used to keep on chewing the coconut for quite sometime. Whenever there were guests at home, they were served along with tea . But as children, we used to gobble them up and Polish off the plates.

Christmas cookie recipes today!

With time, I think things have changed too. Today the kids are so demanding that you never know what they might end up asking for in snacks . Apart from other items I make sure to have Mixed dry fruits cookies in my pantry. As a rule kids, do not eat anything healthy if you serve them in a straight forward way. Incorporating dry fruits in the cookies makes them more nutritious and kids also love them. Apart from nutrition, they also keep the body warm which is specially good for the body during winters.

One cookie that has not changed till date is the nankhatai. They used to be available in the shops and these days, we can make them at home too. I made them too and will share the recipe here at ZKT. They instantly melt in the mouth and the crumbling taste is awesome . You can also make stuffed nankhatai  which is  a bit richer in taste and perfect for celebrations .

More suggestions on Christmas cookie recipes

Cornflakes cookiesWheat coconut cookies are worth trying as both of them do not have refined flour. These can be consumed by diabetic people as well as the white sugar can be lowered and substituted by other sugar substitutes. You can also mix various flours together for making Christmas cookie recipes. They can be consumed by people who are weight conscious too.

I hope you will bake some of the Christmas cookie recipes that I mentioned above and serve them to your guests. Do not bother if they lack professional touch. Remember that anything made at home is more healthy and nutritious than those available in the markets. Moreover you can control the amount of sugar and fat levels from your end and also use healthier options compared to the store bought ones. Please share your feedback with us and Happy cooking. Merry Christmas to you to your near and dear ones!

How Our Family Relishes Juice Recipes, With Nutrition In Check

Juice recipes are that power packed glass of goodness that are easy to prepare. Here is how I make use of juice recipes as a meal or snack in our family and how it benefits our health.

Juice recipes have found an important place in our daily food habits. With increasing technology, our knowledge about food is also increasing. As our body is mostly made up of water, it also becomes more important for us to keep it hydrated. We, as a family do have juices on various occasions and here is how.

Juices rich in nutrition

As a mother of a teenager I am very conscious about the type of food my son eats. As he is in the transformation stage of his life, he requires foods which provide energy and aid in body growth and development. In the hectic school life I try to give him healthy and nutritious food but at times he rushes out saying he is late for school. In the process, breakfast is missed.  During such situations I keep a glass of fresh orange juice recipe ready for him. Orange juice is good for health as it is rich in vitamin-c potassium, folic acid and antioxidants.  It also keeps him energetic throughout his school activities as it is also rich in natural glucose.

Juices to deal with constipation

Though some kids eat everything nicely but they can develop some problems related to bowel movements if they drink less quantity of water. I faced such an issue when my son started going to school when he was a kid. Then I started giving him shakes and smoothies and his favorite being jamun smoothie recipe, which had a mixed taste of all flavors. Thank god that I never encountered such an incident ever.

If kids and adults do not have clear bowel movements many problems may arise. People who have a sedentary lifestyle have many problems related to their excretory system. They develop certain ailments which might prove fatal. Likewise in kids too if water intake is less they might also develop such problems.  I remember when I was working; my colleague’s daughter was operated for such an ailment.  Diseases like piles fistula develop due to constant constipation. These are not only painful but they lower the activity level in kids. In the long run they lose interest in studies too. For constipation an excellent remedy is prune juice recipe and bael juice recipe or woodapple juice. Available in abundance in the summer season, a glass of bael juice is a must at my place on Sundays. It is rich in fibers and helps in cleansing the system .

Juices for weight loss

Some members of my family are allergic to cold. They cannot have foods which are cold at any time of the year. Even when we go out we don’t compromise on our health at any cost. In summers and winters such people can have vegetable juices. Nowadays even the vendors selling juices sell the vegetable juices too. Highly rich in fibers and antioxidants such a juice can also satisfy your short hunger pangs. In winters we can make them at home too, as vegetables and greens are available in abundance. In summers too I make vegetable juice recipe of tomato, coriander and mint if anything else is not available. These types of juices rejuvenate the skin too and also keep our body hydrated. As the vegetable juices are mostly low in calories than the fruit juices, they also aid in weight loss, if fat burning is your goal.

Juice cleanse

A few years back I came across the word ‘Detox’. Detox is a short form for detoxification. It helps our body to get rid of excess fats and other toxins residing in our digestive system.  I also tried it for some time. I don’t recall whether I lost weight or not but I felt energetic whole day. It makes your body very light as the inner system is almost clean. It is an easy way of burning fats. Lauki or bottlegourd juice recipe is also an important detoxifying agent. It is very easily available all-round the year and very economical. It is also good for a healthy skin.

Advantages of juice recipes

  • Juices are a rich source of antioxidants.
  • Natural cleansing agents.
  • Provide instant energy.
  • Help in hydration of the body.
  • Increase immunity.
  • Good detoxifying agents.
  • Help in growth and development.

Thus we can conclude that juices are a boon to the body. You can be healthy if you drink a glass of juice, often with less sugar . Do share any feedback related with the topic and yes “happy cooking”.

Amla Achaari Sabzi Recipe

7 Amla recipes That Help In Building Immunity

Amla recipes are not very popular but they offer the much needed must try season recipes. Also amla recipes help us in building immunity.

Immunity is the ability of a body to resist the attack of foreign bodies. Amla recipes are an immunity booster which strengthens the body immune system. If the immunity is weak the body’s condition deteriorates and in the long run proves fatal. To improve immunity various foods are recommended and amla recipes or Indian gooseberry recipes are one of them.

A neighbor of mine used to buy amla from the vendors daily. I being repulsive to sourness asked her out of curiosity as what kind of amla recipes she cooked out of them. She said that she is doing nothing but just extracting its juice to drink it. Then she told me some of its effects. It helps in developing eyesight , cleanses the system, imparts low to the skin etc.

Amazed by the answer I read the uses and believe me it is a storehouse of nutrients. It is full of vitamin c and other nutrients. Due to its amazing medicinal and nutritional properties it finds an important place in ayurvedic medicines.

Chyawanprash the wonder immunity builder contains a major amount of amla in its composition. Apart from chyawanprash we can incorporate it in our daily life in form of amla recipes. Simple ones but they go a long way to provide nutrition and boost our immunity.

7 Sandwich Recipes That Are Unique Bread Savories

Sandwich recipes help you pack nutrition between two bread slices. These sandwich recipes also make up for a quick breakfast.

An important staple food of half of the world’s population is “bread”. Given below are seven savoury bread sandwich recipes which can be prepared at home.

How to make bread

Bread is usually made from wheat flour. The wheat flour passes through various processes. The end product is bread. An important process in bread making is leavening process. Leavening refers to the rising or fermentation of the flour. It is either natural or artificial. Artificial leavening is induced by various rising agents such as yeast whereas natural leavening does not require any agent but it requires a certain temperature. After the wheat dough rises then it is baked in ovens and then we get what we call as bread. Sandwich recipes are among the most famous recipes with breads.

Bread is a staple food for majority of the people in the world except Asia where rice is staple food. With changing eating habits people do try eating new foods. The bread which we eat in India is usually in the form of chapattis, puris or parathas and is usually cooked fresh and is easily cooked compared to its western counterpart. Bread has also carved a special space in our eating habits. So to suit our needs, we have modified it according to our taste. Sandwich recipes are the most famous breakfast or snack option.
