Indore: Welcoming the new beginning with sun’s transition, Makar Sankranti and Pongal celebrate the harvest of winter season and prepare people for longer sunny days. The harvest festivals celebrated by different communities essentially pay respect to mother earth and recognise the value of food.
To celebrate the occasion, people from different communities prepare traditional dishes using fresh harvest. Living in Indore, the heart of country, people from different communities have accepted and learned recipes from each other.
