India is a country of cultures and traditions. These traditions and cultures have given us some of the best festivals and reasons to indulge in celebrations. The best part of these festivals is food. Different festivals have their own different share of food.
Rakshabandhan is another upcoming festival this August. This festival celebrates the bond between a brother and a sister. It signifies that a brother will and must protect her sister under all circumstances. A sister on the other side prays for the well being of her brother forever.
There is another thing about festivals in India. The guests! With guests coming over, you may want to greet them with food which is as special as the occasion. Below are a few recipes which will definitely get you going for this Rakshbandhan.
