Sun festival


~ The Sun Festival ~

The co- relation of cosmic events with individual life
& values is one of the most astounding traits of Indian
culture. Makar Sankranti or the Sun festival marks the
transition of Sun towards the Northern hemisphere .The
celebrations beautifully signify that as the sun beats
the chill & spreads warmth may we mortals too spread
the warmth of love & happiness . Kite flying , Sweets
made from jaggery & sesame , khichdi (rice cooked
with lentils) , fresh fruits & popcorns are the main
attractions of this festival .


Fruity Offerings

Sliced orange topped with black grapes, cherry , spinach
(moustache) Guava ( rays & clouds),apple, papaya & lettuce(greens)
To make guava triangles for rays - divide a slice of guava into 8
segments n arrange around the orange slice.

  18. Hi,

    I came across your blog and was fascinated by your imagination for food art. By browsing through your blog, I realized that I have seen your pieces of work on other blogs.

    You might want to join a community of bento box who show case their food art with the bento/ tiffin boxes as their canvas. Here is the link http://community.livejournal.com/bentolunch/

    Good luck and Happy Sankranti.
