Whether your sibling has a sweet tooth or a penchant for savoury bites, we have something for everyone. Let's dive into these recipes and make this Raksha Bandhan an unforgettable culinary celebration of sibling love.
Air Fryer Frittata Kickstart the Raksha Bandhan festivities with a wholesome and protein-packed treat. Bursting with flavours, this air-fryer frittata can be customised with your sibling's favourite vegetables, meats and cheeses. Now we may not be able to vouch for your culinary skills, but we sure can guarantee that this gesture will melt your sibling’s heart.
Danish Butter Cookies We all have been in a similar situation, where we open a box of danish cookies (yes, the blue box specifically) only to find sewing material inside. This festivity, surprise your sibling by baking them a batch of these melt-in-your-mouth Danish cookies and filling up those same old boxes. Relive those old inside jokes as you feast on them and maybe even make some new ones.
Butter Garlic Linguine For the sibling who's a fan of savoury delights, a plate of butter garlic linguine will be a flavourful surprise. This simple yet sophisticated pasta dish, adorned with aromatic garlic and a rich buttery sauce will prove to be the ultimate indulgent treat (and maybe even a part of the midnight snacking menu).
Chilli Garlic Mac and Cheese Add a little spice to your Rakhi celebrations with a twist on a classic favourite - chilli garlic mac and cheese. This fusion dish brings together the comfort of creamy mac and cheese with a hint of fiery excitement. Just like siblings balance each other out, the creaminess of the cheese and the kick of chilli work in harmony, creating a chaotic symphony of flavours.
Self-Saucing Cake A delightful dessert that's as enchanting to make as it is to eat, this self-saucing cake is all things heavenly and magical. As you pour the batter into the pan, little do you know that it will transform into a luscious cake with its own velvety sauce beneath. But you’ll just have to try it to see it.
