Maghe Sankranti Special Sweet Ladoos & Steamed sweet Vegetables


In Nepal we celebrate Maghe Sankranti which is the start of the Nepali month Magh, which is around the middle of January.

We celebrate it eating a lot of sweets, boil or steam sweet and fruity vegetables and curries, we gather our family and friends and celebrate the coming of longer and warmer days ahead.


Among those I make here some of these delicious and traditional sweets as well as steamed vegetables, for example: Puffed rice Ladoo, Sesame seeds Ladoos, Pumpkin, Sweet potato, Taro, etc. It is very quick and easy to prepare.
