Festival Sweets of India with Kanika and Lakshmi
October 26, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm
Delhi-born Kanika Gawri has mixed influences from her Punjabi Hindu mother and Punjabi Sikh father. Kanika will be sharing recipes for gajar ka halwa (carrot halva) traditionally prepared for Diwali; and mango lassi – the classic summertime yoghurt drink.Nethi Varalakshmi (Lakshmi) is from the Southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Lakshmi will be making Saggubiyyam Payasam (tapioca pudding) most commonly cooked as an offering to the gods during puja. In Ayurveda tapioca is suggested to cool the body and soothe the stomach – so it is a great summer dessert.
