Mother's Day 2018: Maa ke Haath ka Khaana That You Can Never Get Enough Of
Mother's Day 2018 will be celebrated on 13th May this year. This beautiful day recognises motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in the society. Mothers have long been known as the best caregivers and multi-taskers who not only look after her kids, but also takes care of her parents-in-law, spouse and other family members. Even at modern-day work places, women take so many responsibilities more than they ought to. It's their never-ending role and untiring efforts that make them special.

Amongst all the roles a mother plays, cooking passionately for the family is one of the best and most adored one. Nothing can beat her cooking! As a kid, I remember my mother making some of her signature dishes that I don't think can be replaced by anyone in this world. We have all had our favourite dishes that our mothers made, and this Mother's Day, let's reminisce those memories and thank them for their unconditional love.

We have rounded up a list of dishes that are known to be gems that came straight out of our mothers' kitchen.

1. Rajma Chawal

Who can forget those lip-smacking rajma chawal being made on a sunny Sunday afternoon? Rajma chawal has always been our most favourite dish since childhood; and the credit goes to our mothers to have introduced the much-loved staple.

2. Maa-Ki-Dal

Lovably known as maa-ki-dal, it is basically dal makhani given a homely touch with, of course, lesser butter and more ghee and malai used as cream. Made with much love and affection, what could have been a better name than maa-ki-dal?

3. Aam Ka Achaar

Aam ka achaar has been a staple for most of us. If nothing, this achaar came to rescue and made the best pair with paratha and puris along with aloo ki sabji. Remember those long train journeys? Yes, that's what we are talking about.

4. Aloo Paratha

Aloo stuffed paratha made the best breakfast, especially during holidays. And, thanks to mom's extra love, a dollop of butter, these ghee made parathas would taste heavenly. Mouth-watering much?

5. Haldi Wala Doodh

I remember, as a kid, hurting myself most of the times by falling down in the park I used to play in. My mother forced me to gulp down a glass of haldi wala doodh that helped me heal quickly. Mom certainly knows the best!

Be it atta ka halwa, sooji ka halwa or even gajar ka halwa, it takes no time for moms to make these delights. The mere mention of these desserts ensured a bowlful prepared by mom.

8. Aloo Puri

One of the best combinations often prepared in tiffin boxes, aloo puri was surely one of the most devoured delicacies then. The simple jeera aloo tasted heavenly; no wonder maa-ke-haath-ka-khana is magical.
