It’s monsoon. That time of the year again when the breeze is cool, the weather is romantic and our hearts crave for delicious food.


Sweet or spicy, rainy season means lazying around on that couch near the window and enjoying our favourite foods. Because food adds magic to the already magical monsoon.

And here’s a list of food one cannot miss as it rains outside.

1. Every rainy day is a ‘chai and pakode‘ kinda day.

My maasi @kanak.daga.9 makes amazing desserts 😍. Yesterday she made this delicious, Rajasthani dessert for @harsh_daga08 because it was his birthday. Most popularly ghewar is made during the month of August or the auspicious month of Shravana or Sawan when the festival of Teej and Raksha Bandhan falls. Not only for Rakshabhandan, but Malai Ghevar can be made for birthdays as well for a change. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #ghevar #foodie #sweets #indiansweets #mithai #homemade #yummy #foodblogger #sweettooth #food #delicious #foodporn #foodlover #noadulteration #traditionalsweets #nopreservatives #sweedesi #foodphotography #boondiladdu #indianfood #milkcake #kalakand #bhfyp #kajukatli #dessert #punekar #petha #desifood #ghewar #bhfyp
