Not the usual delicacy for the festival but the meal was feast

I know I should have written about this post few days back but couldn't because the festival was on. Weekend .Guys I am talking about the Indian Festival Basant Panchami which was on 24th of January .

Basant Panchami is a day dedicated for the Goddess of learning Saraswati .Its auspicious to wear yellow colour dress and cook something yellow in colour .

As per tradition Zarda - saffron flavoured sweet rice is cooked this day.
I thought of adding some saffron strands to kheer to give it yellowish tinge .
So the menu for the dinner was - Paratha,Nimona ,Kheer and salad.

If you are lucky to have some leftover curry the next day pair it up with Ajwain Kachodi and some pickle..Perfect for weekend breakfast or brunch .
