Jeera Aloo, Fenia and Plain Parantha (Shack Saturdays Special)

Some very popular Indian dishes which are simple yet irresistible. I learnt some by watching mum cook in the kitchen and some by experimenting myself. These form a part of the sargi ensemble consumed just before the fast associated with the Karva Chauth festival begins.

Aalu Jeera - Indian Curry Shack
Jeera Aloo – Potatoes spiced with cumin seeds. One of the simplest and mouth-watering preparation.

Fenia or Semia - ICS
Fenia – Vermicelli Pudding or Seviyan Kheer. A delicious dessert which has ritualistic importance too.

Plain Paranthas - Indian Curry Shack
Plain Parantha – A variety of Indian Bread made with whole wheat flour. It is usually layered and is crispy.

The combination of these combined with fruits and other delicacies form a delicious meal which is had before sunrise on the day of the festival.

Wishing A Very Happy Karva Chauth To All!

…Stay tuned for the recipes!
