Hello from my part of the world!!!!!!!!!

Hope you are all having a great time !!!!!!!!!!!!!Today i will be sharing a recipe that is perfect for Shravan Somvar . The month of Shravan is also known as Sawan month in North Indian states and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. All Mondays or Somwar(s) which fall during Shravan month are considered highly auspicious for fasting and known as Shravan Somwar or Sawan Somwar Vrats. Many devotees observe sixteen Mondays or Solah Somwar fasting from first Somwar of Sawan month. People fast according to their belief and  traditions in the family.
