Today on this auspicious day of Maghe Sankrantri, our next tomorrow’s chef have served the cultural foods with eye appealing plating and presentation.

Maghe Sankranti is a Nepalese festival observed on the first of Magh in the Vikram Sambat (B.S) calendar. Tharu people celebrate this particular day as New Year. It is also regarded as the major festival of the Magar community. Maghe Sankranti is similar to solstice festivals in other religious traditions.

Maghe Sankranti is regarded as marking the beginning of an auspicious phase in Nepalese culture. It is cited as the ‘holy phase of transition’. It marks the end of an inauspicious phase. It is believed that any auspicious and sacred ritual can be sanctified in any Nepali family, this day on-wards. Scientifically, this day marks the beginning of warmer and longer days compared to the nights. In other words, Sankranti marks the termination of winter season and beginning of a new harvest or spring season.

People believe the sun is the symbol of power, divinity, and wisdom hence they worship it on this day. On this day, people take baths in the morning which is supposed to be holy, in rivers. This bath is generally performed in Triveni (the point where three rivers meet).

Tharu community have culture of cutting pigs, boars, ducks, and hens at their homes for this particular day. Tharus perform several traditional cultural shows in Maghi.

The food we eat on the day of Maghi is also very popular. The food is based on the beliefs of Surya (sun). The foodstuffs include Till ko laddu (Brown Sesame seed Fudge), Chakku (Molasses), Ghee (Clarified Butter), Tilauri. Spinach and Yam’s curry is cooked as Maghe Shankranti’s special food. A special type of Spinach called Patne Palungo specially grown in Nepal and yam (the yam is Tarul in Nepali). They are said to provide warmth and energy to the body to function properly.

Maithili cuisine: Plating up its delicious authenticity




The kitchen of IHM College, Satdobato which is usually filled with its students practising culinary arts, on January 6, had a team of experienced chefs preparing Maithili flavours, which not all of us might have savoured yet.

Maheshwar Shah, Senior Sous Chef of Vivanta and his teammates prepared the Maithili cuisine in an event hosted by the college, aiming to highlight and promote the cuisine’s significance.

The preparation was part of an event titled ‘Plating and Presentation: Five Delicacies Course of Maithili Cuisine’, organised by I am with CHEF in association with IHM College and Hospitality Guides.

The inspiration to prepare Maithili cuisine came from MasterChef: The Professionals finalist Chef Santosh Shah. “Chef Santosh Shah promoted Nepali cuisine on the international arena. I thought I too need do something and I decided to promote the cuisine of my community,” shared Maheshwar.

And added, “Art, literature and culture of Maithili society is remarkable and everyone has an idea about, but less people know that the Maithili cuisine too is rich in taste and reflects the wide variety of culture and traditions.”

This richness is what he reflected in his cooking, preparing traditional dishes with a modern presentation. Mattka Chai (hot pot tea), served as a welcome drink, was flavoursome — the garam masala flavour hit the right spot in every sip.

As a starter Bagiya (rice flour dumplings) was served with Kachari (spiced onion).

Bagiya was not just scrumptious but felt healthy too.

Though it tasted like the regular pakoda, the Kachari wasn’t oily. But it was Bathuwa Saag ko Soup (soup of wild spinach) that was the winner of the day.

The creamy feel with the perfect hint of black pepper enhanced the soup’s flavour.

For the main course, he served a thali comprising authentic Maithili dishes — Taaruwa (fried potatoes), Aloo Chhokha (spiced smashed potato), Dal Jhaneko (tempered pulses), Fish Curry, Paapad, Tilaura (sweet made by mixing sesame seeds and peanuts), green chilli, Aam ko Achaar (mango pickle) and rice. The dishes were spicy but delicious — Aloo Chhokha was juicy and had the perfect blend of spices. The Fish Curry was a surprise — brimming with the taste of natural herbs and spices, the taste excited one’s palate.

Curd, Sakaarauri (gram flour pudding) and Paan (prepared betel leaf) were served as dessert. While the Sakaarauri slightly felt like rice pudding but with the right blend of almond, cashewnut, raisins, and saffron, it had an authentic flavour all its own.

The event also saw the participation of Chef Puspha Thapa Magar, Founding president of Chef Association of Nepal, Dhirendra Premarshi, Mithila Culture Expert, Chef Sandeep Khatri, Chef Mohan Gajurel, General Secretary(GNCF) among many others. Highlighting the importance of Maithili cuisine, Premarshi said, “It is a representation of people from Mithila, and its richness can be felt through the taste. Now all we need to do is promote it.” Chef Khatri added, “Maithili cuisine, if promoted well, can be the next big cuisine in the world.”

You are what you eat

Eating a healthy diet is all about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and boosting your mood. 

The importance of nutritious food for children especially needs to be highlighted since otherwise they may end up being prone to severe growth and developmental problems.

A balanced diet includes some specific healthy food groups under it:

  • Vegetables such as leafy greens, starchy vegetables, legumes like beans and peas, red and orange vegetables, and others like eggplant
  • Fruits that include whole fruits, fresh or frozen fruits but not canned ones dipped in syrup
  • Grains such as whole grains and refined grains. For example, oats, brown rice, barley, and buckwheat
  • Protein such as lean beef and pork, chicken, fish, beans, peas, and legumes
  • Dairy products such as low-fat milk, yoghurt, cottage cheese, and soy milk

A balanced diet typically contains 50 to 60 per cent carbohydrates, 12 to 20 per cent protein, and 30 per cent fat. All the organs and tissues need proper nutrition to work effectively by consuming the right amount of nutrients and calories to maintain an ideal weight. The overall health and well-being of a person are dependent on good nutrition, physical exercise, and healthy body weight.


The importance of a healthy lifestyle

It’s not just a balanced diet that’s enough but also healthy practices of eating. Some of them which you can follow are:

  • Eat-in smaller portions
  • Take time to eat
  • Cut down on snacks
  • Curb emotional eating

Food labelling and additives permitted in food vary from country to country. When a food additive is used, the label must list all the additives added to the food. The additive can be designated on the label by its chemical name or by a general class name.
