Who doesn’t like festive food and when it comes to the North Indian full vegetarian menu for the most loved day of Rakhi, nothing can beat that. Rakhi is a special day to celebrate one among the most loved and special bonds on this earth and i.e., sibling’s love. A relationship connected since birth not only with the blood but also with the mind.
Well, there is no such special pre-decided menu for this day, previously my mom used to cook we sisters prefer on this day, and now I am following tradition and try to prepare a meal which my kids love.
But, as I always mention that there is a Tom and Jerry relationship which they share, and that follows in their choice of meal. Sharing an idea of what you can prepare for this Raksha Bandhan, a North Indian full vegetarian menu to make this day more special.
North Indian full vegetarian menu idea
1. Dal Makhani:
Made with Whole Black Lentils, this is one of the most popular and delicious cuisines from Punjab and is mostly loved by kids and even elders. With whole Urad dal, rajma, butter, and spices, this is one of the most popular lentil dishes.
2. Malai Kofta:
This is another dish that is a favorite among North Indians, It is a dish in which we serve potato paneer balls with a delicious, smooth, rich & creamy gravy.
3. Matar Paneer:
One of the common dishes which is easy to prepare and very common in every festival in North Indian families is Matar Paneer, we prepare it from paneer cubes and matar.
4. Aalo Gobi
We require one dry vegetable to complete the meal of the day. It could be anything but, mostly the one people love the combination with Aalo Gobi dry.
5. Poori/ Garlic Naan
First choice on any festival in North India is always Poori or Kachuri(filled with dal), even you can try garlic naan too but I prefer Poori with the combination of Dal Makhani and Malai kofta.
Urad dal Kachori is one of the most loved and cooked in every home during festivals, if you want to ditch poori or naan which we usually have quite often, try this spicy and tasty Kachori on this Rakhi.
7. Jeera Rice
A simple Jeera(Cumin) rice completes the meal. Cook in desi ghee with little salt and cumin seeds to give a little extra flavor. This completes the North Indian full vegetarian menu.
No market dessert can complete the meal, if you are preparing a North Indian full vegetarian menu, you need to finish it with Chawal(Rice) ki Kheer or Gulab ki Kheer.
Apart from these items, you can add following items in your thali as per the choice of your family and guests:
- Mix Veg
- Shahi Paneer
- Kadhai Paneer
- Missi Roti
- Veg Biryani
- Tawa Pulao
- Stuffed tawa vegetables
- Gulab Jamun
No meal is completed without pickle, raita and papad. So, this Raksha Bandhan festival serves your sibling’s food cooked with love and taste which connect both of you since childhood. North Indian full vegetarian menu completes the festive mood.
