Makar means Capricorn and Sankranti is transition. We celebrate Makar Sankranti on 14th January every year. In Bengal it is called 'poush sankranti'. The Goddess Lakshmi is usually worshiped on the day of Sankranti. Every part of India celebrates the same festival with different name and food. According to Hindu Shashtra this day marks the termination of the Winter season and the beginning of a new harvest season. From childhood, I love this festival. My grandma and ma makes so many varities of sweet and savory food like 'pithe', 'dudh puli', 'bhaja pithe', 'soru chakli', 'ashke', 'patisapta', 'kholachi' etc with their love and affection. Each and every dish tastes delicious. 'Ros bora' is another sweet which we make on this special occasion. My father is a big fan of 'ros bora'. The dish needs a little effort but the end result will satisfy you. I made this sweet dish to celebrate 'makar sankranti'. Hope you will all enjoy this festival with lots of sweets.
