Dhanteras💰is celebrated with a lot of enthusiasm throughout India, two days before Diwali🎉
A lot of delectable food is prepared which is considered to bring in good luck.
On Dhanteras, special offering called Naivedya is prepared for Goddess Lakshmi and an elaborate meal is cooked at home as part of the beginning of Diwali festivities.
Some dishes/foods are typical of Dhanteras that are prepared to bring in good fortune.
Here is what we make - Whole boiled moong and rice, eaten mixed with ghee and sugar.
Some other delicacies which I found through google
Eastern and parts of North India, whole wheat or atte ka halwa
Long-grain cracked wheat sauteed with ghee and sugar known as "lapsi" is very popular in several parts of the country, and may be accompanied by a curry of yard-long beans, that symbolize longevity.
In Maharashtra, dry coriander seeds are mixed with jaggery and offered as prasad to Goddess Lakshmi.
Panchamrit, Boondi Laddoo, Kheer or rice pudding made with jaggery, milk and rice is considered auspicious and is a must have during the Dhanteras Puja.
What do you prepare as Naivedya today🎆🎊🎉🎇
