I live in a country where all fruits are vegetables aren’t available all through the year.
Seasonal fruits and vegetables are fresh and cheap. Out-of-season fruits and vegetables are from cold storage and are quite expensive. So we usually buy seasonal fruits veggies and enjoy them to the fullest till they are in season. Other than fresh produce, we have other seasonal dishes too.
In winter, the most famous and popular dishes are;
Carrot halva, mustard greens cooked as saag and served with roti made of corn flour. We also make halvas out of split chickpeas flour, squash, and pumpkins in winter.
In summer we go for light, low-calorie foods like fruit salads or dahi bhalas, a dish made of spicy yogurt and lentil dumplings. Our favorite drinks are lemonade, rooh afza ( a traditional drink made from fruit extract and sugar), and sweetened chia seed drink. Chat, a mixture of boiled chickpeas, potatoes, raw onions, tomatoes, and chilies is also very popular.
What are your seasonal foods?
