Janmashtami Celebration 2012

Today is Janmashtami ,

Lord Krishna 's Birthday

which is celebrated with much pomp and grandeur throughout the country
.Like every year today when i got up I was filled with the warm memories of my childhood days ,we would be busy colouring sand and wood scrap different colour to decorate rangoli .
Dadi would be busy in kitchen with my mom and aunts preparing all kind of phalahar delicacies .Now it all seems like a dream to me and yeah a beautiful dream,this festival is not celebrated at my inlaws place thus no fasting for me but still i prepare a feast to celebrate Krishna's Birthday and relive  the memories of yesteryears

.Today while dropping Advay to bus stop I told him about Krishna's Birthday
he asked me "Mummy how old is Krishna Bhagwan
I replied "he is god ,he is not human being so you cant calculate his age
this answer satiated him ,..;-)
Last year i prepared Poori Sabji
this year i prepared Naan and Dal Makhani
recipe of Naan  is inspired from  here ,instead of two cups of  all purpose flour i have use one cup whole wheat and one cup all purpose flour
recipe of Dal Makhani is inspired from Vege yum blog

i didn't add any cream while preparing the tadka ,topped the cooked dal with home made fresh cream before serving and a dollop of ghee.

Wish all the readers of Asan Khana Happy Janmashtami
wish you all happy weekend
take care and happy blogging.
