It's time to celebrate with kite flying, bonfires, fairs, Surya Puja in rivers, Feast, arts, dance, socialisation and most importantly eating sweet delicacies. Makar Sankranthi, a festival of India and in different parts of India it is known by different names. Bohgali Bihu, Pongal, Poush Sankranti, Lahori are the festivities celebrated in different states of India in this season of the year. In our Bengali Tradition, we make variety of Traditional sweets/Pitha on this day at night and cook outside the house and make feast cooking together with friends and family. Coming to my Misti Lauer Pitha, I made today for this Poush Sankranthi. It's a sweet made of sweet pumpkin. Yes, it's pumpkin only I learnt it from my Maa. She makes it so well and perfect that anybody who have tasted it will surely ask for another. After my marriage I started making them here and everyone likes it very much. It melts in mouth. So soft and yum. Try them once you will surely like it.
Take out the excess water after boiling the pumpkin so that it should not be watery.
