Thinking of what to make this Makar Sankranti, something other than Pongal? These chefs share what’s cooking in their homes for Makar Sankranti!
It’s that time of the year when we make some hot Pongal and yummy Til ke laddoos and sit on our terrace while enjoying kite flying competitions with our family. It feels like just yesterday when we were counting down the last seconds to the new year and here we are celebrating the first festival of 2022! The festive fervor is something we all love and wait for each year! Makar Sankranti is one such festival where we decorate our homes with colorful rangolis, buy kites in different shapes, and watch the sky look beautiful with so many kites. We spoke to some chefs who tell us what they’re cooking in their houses for the festival because let’s accept it, every festival is incomplete without yummy food! So here are some delicious and super easy savories that you can also prepare.
These are not only amazing but also loaded with some health benefits, check them out!

“Well, I have prepared Til bhugga which is a North Indian specialty for Makar Sankranti. This recipe will be live tomorrow on my blog. It’s not a baking recipe but it’s a cooking recipe.”

“I would like to make a yummy homemade pudding for my family. Berries are in season so maybe a classic strawberry trifle. My mother makes the best til ke ladoo. This is how we will spend tomorrow, eating, flying kites, and making merry.”

“This year I am making Pooda which is also called Malpua, this is the favorite of many people in India and it’s mine also. There is nothing better than eating something sweet on the day of our festival.”
