How to celebrate Guru Nanak Jayanti!

How about celebrating Guru Nanak Jayanti this year by taking an active part in a Langar at your nearest Gurudwara.  Langar is a general term for kitchen canteen, where food is served for free to every visitor irrespective of their caste, colour, age, religion, creed, gender etc. You can do various pre-cooking tasks like chopping, grinding followed by cooking dals, vegetables, etc and of course rolling out countless rotis. This is how langar becomes a success! A langar experience is sure to linger not only on your palates but also in your hearts. After you’ve done your bit at the langar, you can cook up a feast for friends and family with the list of following authentic recipes:
