15 Recipes For A Sumptuous Baisakhi Celebration


Baisakhi is a festival celebrated mostly in North Indian regions – especially Punjab. The festival is also a milestone for the Sikh community as on this day in 1699, Guru Gobind Singh founded the Panth Khalsa.

Apart from endless rounds of upbeat bhangra and gidda, the celebrations of this auspicious festival include a long list of scrumptious foods. And here are 10 of our favorites to get your Baisakhi started!


  1. Sarson Da Saag & Makke Di Roti

How is a Punjabi festival even complete without this delicious duo?


  1. Dal Makhni

And some naan to up the food ante.


  1. Tandoori Chicken

Sink your teeth into some char grilled chicken marinated in desi spices. Vegetarians can binge on this paneer variation instead.


  1. Pindi Chana

Tangy chickpeas with a tangier gravy send your palate dancing.


  1. Kheer

Slurp up some dry fruit-rich thick kheer for a Punjabi sugar rush.


  1. Laddoo

Stuff up your face with these ghee-laden goodies.


  1. Suji Halwa

With a handful of extra nuts, of course!

Now, you’ll need something to wash down all that scrumptious decadence, right?

A match made in Punjabi heaven.

A little grilled/tandoori delight for all you fish lovers.

Golden fried fish!

A feast for vegetarians. Pair this with some paratha or plain naan.
