As you all know that Raksha Bandhan is a Hindi word, which means the bond of protection. On this auspicious festival, sisters tie a sacred thread on their brother’s wrist and in return, brother’s vow to protect their sisters.

“It’s a day for feasting delectable dishes, especially sweets that are the integral part of this wonderful festival.”

Mostly, it has been seen that people usually prepare dishes as per the family traditions and tastes, such as Laddos, Kesar Burfi, Balushai, Gulab Jamun and Rasgullas that are favourites of everyone.
