Celebrating Raksha Bandhan : A festival of brothers and sisters

in food •  6 months ago

Raksha bandhan is the festival of brother and sister celebrated among people of South Asian origin. Raksha Bandhan is an ancient festival of the Indian subcontinent, and its history dates back thousands of years. On this day, sisters of all ages tie a talisman, or amulet, called the rakhi, around the wrists of their brothers, ritually protecting their brothers.


Today we also celebrated the festival at our home. My sister visited us and tied Rakhi to all of us.

The celebration is incomplete without delicious food. Specially for this occasion, I prepared some vegan dishes which are traditionally non-vegan.
Kheer is traditionally made with animal milk and rice but I prepared it with a blend of plant milk(soy, almond and oats in equal quantity).

In the above video I used only almond milk but today I tried to make it different with a blend of milk.
Another vegan dish I made was Tofu with Green peas which is a vegan version of popular Mutter-Paneer( Indian cottage cheese with green peas).
Veganizing any non-vegan food is really a challenge and I always love to accept this challenge and really enjoy to give vegan options to non-vegans.
I believe that true celebration is the celebration in which no any sentient being harmed for our food. A celebration is not a celebration if it is responsible for pain and suffering for others.
