As we enter the new year 2023, please join us to mark a new beginning
Friday, 13th & 14TH January 2023, all day
Around 14th January every year, an observance and a festival is held throughout India that is known as Makar Sankraanti. This occasion marks the transition of the Sun from the zodiac of Sagittarius (Dhanu) to Capricorn (Makara).Many native multi-day festivals are organised on this occasion all over India such as Pongal, Bihu and Lohri to name but a few.
We will also be celebrating these festivals at Cafe Spice Namaste on 13th and 14th January 2023 by serving you some delicious regional dishes whilst also running fun activities such as kite flying.
Dal Kachori Chaat
Consumed mostly as a snack or as breakfast, Kachori is almost like a flaky, crispy pie which is stuffed with lentils, lightly rolled and deep fried. We are serving it as a Chaat – with chilled yogurt and chutneys
Sarson ka saag with Makki ki roti
A meal in itself, this dish is a firm favourite with all Panjabis. Mustard, spinach and fenugreek leaves are slow-cooked to form a thick melange and there are robust flavours of ginger and tomatoes. It is served with Corn meal flatbread.
Special Makar Sankraanti thaali
A platter that consists of a snack, four delightful savoury vegetarian dishes, rice, bread and sweet-dish.
A traditional sweet dish made with rice, moong dal, jaggery, clarified butter (ghee), nuts & raisins.
