7 Dishes You Must Try This Dussehra

Trisha Pathak

Nimki or Namak Para

You can prepare nimki by adding ghee, cumin, hing, and other spices to a maida dough. Roll it out as thin as possible, and then cut the sheet into tiny square pieces and deep fry until crunchy.


Ghughni, a curry made with peas or chickpeas, is a tangy and savoury snack. It can be completely vegetarian. You can serve it with chopped onion, squeezed lime juice, and sev.

Narkel Naru

Made with freshly grated coconut, the narkel naru contains khoya with sugar or jaggery. You can also add cardamom powder for aroma and flavour.

Mochar Chop

Made with banana flowers, mochar chop is a famous Bengali vegetarian dish. It tastes best with kasundi and chopped onions. However, it's a little tricky to make as the banana flowers need intense cleaning before usage.


Mihidana is the micro-cousin of the traditional boondi. It is an easily available dessert during Dussehra, which strikes the perfect balance between sweet and savoury.


According to folklore, Ram ate jalebi to celebrate his victory over Ravana. Jalebi-fafda, a famous Gujarati combination, is a must-have on Dussehra.

Dal Paratha & Kheer

Parathas, made with chana dal, carom seeds, and salt and served with kheer, are the perfect way to start Dussehra.
