It’s the time of year when the sun’s transition to Capricorn occurs, and the days become longer and the sun's rays stronger. This marks the day of Makar Sankaranti, which is also known as the harvest festival of our country.
This joyous occasion, noted for vibrant kites soaring in the sky, is also an opportunity to indulge in delicious traditional dishes, and the celebration is incomplete without a feast.
Umanac, with its high-quality organic products, can add an extra layer of goodness to your festivities. Today, in this blog, we are going to explore the products of Umanac and how these can uplift your culinary experience.
Makar Sankranti is associated with sweetness, so what better way to complement your Til Laddu than with Umanac's organic honey? Umanac's honey is a pure and unadulterated natural sweetener sourced from the greatest organic sources. Drizzle it over “til” (sesame) and gur (jaggery) to enhance their flavour, or incorporate it into traditional dishes for an extra depth of richness. This honey's unusual floral aromas will enhance the flavour of your Makar Sankranti delicacies.
Sweets and delicious food play an important role in every Indian festival, and Makar Sankranti is centred around food. If you are planning to make ghee-laden sweets like chiki or gajak, then you are in the right spot. Umanac Organic Ghee, when added to these assortments, can be a treat to your soul. People in North India prepare delicious khichdi along with fried veggies and chutney and eat it with a large scoop of ghee.
Turmeric holds a special place in Indian cuisine for its vibrant colour and numerous health benefits. Umanac's lakadong turmeric powder, sourced from the pristine hills of Meghalaya, is renowned for its high curcumin content. Season your Makar Sankaranti foods with a sprinkling of this golden delight, such as haldi-kumkum rice or turmeric-infused snacks. It not only improves the visual appeal of your food, but it also adds flavour and health advantages.
Umanac's Himalayan pink rock salt is a healthier alternative to ordinary salt. This salt, mined from ancient salt sources in the Himalayan region, is mineral-rich and adds a subtle, delicate flavour to your recipes. Season your Makar Sankranti delights with it, from savoury snacks to traditional dinners, and notice the difference in taste and texture.
Makar Sankranti is a time to celebrate nature's goodness, and Umanac's organic moringa powder embodies that notion well. This nutrient-rich powder, which is high in vitamins and antioxidants, can be added to your foods for a healthy twist. For added nutrition that matches the festive spirit, sprinkle it over salads, blend it into chutneys, or add it to your beverages.
This Makar Sankranti, let Umanac's organic products be the secret elements that lift your traditional recipes to new heights. Umanac offers a symphony of flavours and health benefits to complement your upcoming festivities. Umanac represents the concept of purity and righteousness, making your Makar Sankranti celebrations truly special.
