The auspicious day of Sikh Community, Guru Nanak Jayanti, is being celebrated today. As the advent of COVID has affected other festivals, the grand celebration of Gurpurab is also going lowkey this year.
Though the feel of festivity can not be replicated at home, you can always bring the flavours of the grand feast in your kitchen and enjoy a heartful meal with your closed ones.
Take a look at some of the recipes:
For a day ignore all the diet plans and indulge in the goodness of ghee, sugar and wheat. Try making smooth, velvety and scrumptious karah prasad at home. Take equal amounts of ghee, sugar and whole wheat flour. Make sugar solution in a pan and take another pan and melt the ghee. Add flour to it and keep stirring. Once the wheat flour turns golden, pour the sugar syrup in it and cook it well. Serve it hot.
2.Langar Wali Dal:
Try the simple yet lip-smacking langar wali dal with roti. Pressure cook the whole urad and bengal gram with chopped ginger and garlic. In a heavy bottom pan, heat oil and add finely chopped onion and fry it till it becomes golden. Add ginger garlic paste to it along with garam masala, asafoetida, cumin powder and coriander powder. Cook it well and pour the cooked and mashed dal into it. Add salt and let it simmer for a while. Serve it with a scoop of butter and enjoy.
Prepare the Gurudwara style lauki ki sabzi at home in under 30 minutes. Chop bottle gourd in small pieces and keep it aside. In a pan, heat some oil and add cumin seeds to it, followed by chopped onion. Once onion turns golden, add ginger and chilli along with turmeric powder, coriander powder and cumin powder. Now add tomatoes and fry it well. Put chopped bottle gourd in it and pressure cook it. Transfer it to a pan and add a spoon of garam masala and let it simmer. Try it with roti or rice.
