Janmashtami Foods: Do Not Miss These!

Happy Janmashtami! Janmashtami is usually associated with baby Krishna jhankis, visits to temples, many, many dahi-handi events, and if you are anything like me, lots and lots of mithai. But sometimes festivals get a little mundane with you doing the same things over and over, every  year. If you are bored of the usual – chane, puri and kheer – let this year not be the same! Let's change a few things…at least food-wise. 

Here are eight fabulous lip-smacking dishes you can try this Janmashtami. So amp up your celebrations and happy eating guys!

Saute and season spinach and serve it with fresh paneer, feta cheese or cream cheese.
