The flavour of the ‘kang’ season: Kang gi Khechri

  1. Reading this post I so want to be in Manipur during the Kang season!
    Khichri in eastern UP is a preparation as well as the local name for the festival of Makar Sankranti (Around January 14th). Khichri is offered to the deity at the Gorakhnath temple in Gorakhpur. Otherwise, khichri is a food that is not cooked on a Thrusday. Saturday on the other hand is considered an ideal day for cooking Khichri. Any such rules in Manipur??

  2. nope. not any such rule that i am aware of. but it is usually cooked with ooti and it is a heavy meal so sunday or any other holiday is the convenient day to prepare it. according to my nephew, sunday is ooti-day, the day when one can sit back and relax at home.
    on the day of Makar Sankranti, we are supposed to consume sesame candies
