Rakhi is literally around the corner and I can not be more excited! Rakhi means endless fun with siblings and God, what a fun day! Each year I am super pumped to create one of my desserts for my siblings. This year, I bring to you 10 desserts to try this Rakshabandhan. These are easy to whip up, can easily be dressed up, and your sibling will surely be surprised!
These 10 desserts to try this Rakshabandhan are some of my personal favourites. And if I could have my sister bake me anything, these will be it. I love how the Rakhi festival is filled with endless warmth and love. Everyone comes together to celebrate some thing so beautiful, so pious. If you are not and Indian and you are reading this article, Rakshabandhan is a festival devoted to siblings. The sister ties a rakhi around her brother’s wrist- and this guarantees her brother’s protection over her always. The festival is one in which love is exchanged- unconditionally and endlessly. The best part for the sister, however, are the gifts that brothers whip up! In addition to materialistic gifts, I personally feel that brothers can go an extra mile this Rakhi and whip up something extra sweet!
Trust me when I say this, these recipes will not let you down no matter what! These 10 desserts to try this Rakshabandhan are absolutely worth a shot (or two).
