Bhogate saadheko (Pomelo) in Nepal
Pomelo or Chinese Grapefruit is a citrus fruit that is offered to Goddess Laxmi on the day of Laxmi Puja (Tihar, the second main festival of Nepal). It is also an indispensable component during the Mha Puja (Another important occasion of the Newari ethnic group). Most of the Nepalese folks dwelling in the Hilly and Terai regions prefer to have a small kind of family gathering in which they prepare a dish out of it called ‘Bhogate saadheko’.
We like to call this day a ‘mini-festival’ for every Nepali household of those regions. The essential ingredients to make this cuisine look appealing are supplementary fruits like oranges, bananas, apples, mosambi and so on. Furthermore, additions of spices like curcumin powder, cumin, fenugreek as well as salt, sugar and not to forget- yogurt as the topping, will certainly gratify any foodie.
Not only has it gustatory delights, but research shows that it is also rich in nutrients required by our body like Vitamin C, Fiber, antioxidants and anti-aging agents. Scientists have discovered that it is good for the health of heart and is a potential cancer fighter. Nothing can be more surprising than these facts about Pomelo, isn't it??
So, you can try ‘Bhogate saadheko’ when you visit Nepal in winter. What say you?
