Mug Pakon Pithe - Sayantani's (of A Homemaker's Diary) recipe
This year I wanted to try something new for Makar Sankranti (Poush Parbon). While I had been toying with the idea of trying some recipe which is from the southern part of India, Sayantani of A Homemaker's Diary shared her recipe of Mug Pakon on Facebook - I knew right away that that's what I was going to make.
It is no secret that I am a huge fan Sayantani of A Homemaker's Diary and have always been in awe of all her work! I am so glad that she became a friend (and not just a co-blogger when Kolkata Food Bloggers was formed 4 years back! She has always been a very generous mentor and her feedback on my food photos has helped me grow as a food photographer.
I was still recovering from a bad bout of food allergies and sore muscles (results of going to the gym after days..err make that years) and could not be on my feet for too long but I did manage to make these along with my Gur er Patishapta and Khoya'r Malpoa.
I followed her recipe to the tee! So hop on over to A Homemaker's Diary to find out how to make Mug Pakon - Nakshi Pithey and be amazed by the work of art by the very talented Sayantani! And do not miss her beautiful write-up!
The shapes and designs of my Mug Pakon Pithe are far from traditional, but I thoroughly enjoyed making these.
Oh, btw, the wooden plate (charger plate), the dokra planter and the brass jewelry box are all gifts from her that her husband very graciously carried all the way from Kolkata to here while on a business trip!
