Potato patties stuffed with fresh coconut,cashew and fresh herbs
Tomorrow is Krishna Janmashtami ( the day when Lord Krishna was born) and most of the followers of Lord Krishna fast on this auspicious day including my family. Traditionally on Shri Krishna Janmashtami consumption of grain and pulses are not allowed,only millet’s, fruits and few selected root vegetables can be consumed throughout the day , however this tradition might vary on individual family choice and rituals.
Throughout the day of Krishna Janmashtami we spend our mornings making preparations for Krishna janam decorations,lighting and making prashad of panjiri and panchamrit and finally in the evening we have a feast to enjoy after midnight i.e after the time Lord Krishna was born .
Buff vada or nariyal ki kachori is a Gujarati specialty which is a popular snack to have during fasting.The outer covering is made with boiled and mashed potato and a delicious tangy mix of fresh coconut,herbs and dry fruits is used for stuffing.the tangy stuffing makes it so delicious .You can also make it as a snack on any occasion.
In my family we make different types of Mawa paag, Phool Makhana kheer, Rajgiri ki poori , Vrat ki Aloo subzi , kuttu ki pakodi , Phalahari Arbi ki subzi , Samak and aloo tikki and many different dishes on Janmashtami.
