Come winter and it is the time for indulgence. Well, who can blame anyone? This is the season when the markets are brimming with all sorts of root vegetables, and leafy greens that are robust with natural goodness. No wonder then that in India we eagerly wait for winters to make our favourite seasonal dishes such as a hot bowl of gajar ka halwa cooked with red carrots or bite into mooli ke parathas. You can savour the true flavour of the produce only during the season, not earlier or later.
1. Gajar ka Halwa
One of the most popular Indian desserts, Gajar ka Halwa is hard to resist. Known to have originated in Punjab, it is a delight during the winter months. Grated carrots, milk, sugar and nuts are stirred and cooked together.
2. Sarson Da Saag
Nothing is more quintessentially Punjabi than Sarson da Saag paired with Makki di Roti. It is a stew-like preparation made with mustard green leafs.
3. Mooli-Gobhi Parathas
Being Indians our love for parathas are has are not hidden, but having mooli and gobhi parathas in winters is nothing less than food delight. Stuffed with raddish and cauliflower the parathas are healthy and satisfies your tastes buds as well.
4. Gond ke Laddu
This traditional winter delicacy is often had with a glass of warm milk for breakfast, while some prefer to enjoy it as a dessert after a nice meal! It gives you warmth and is good for health as well in winters.
5.Matar ki Kachauri
It is prepared with all purpose flour dough which is stuffed with the green peas plus spice masala and later deep fried to round flattened ball. There are several variations to this flaky layered snack which often varies with its stuffing. We can also try matar kadhi and matar paratha.
