Planning to host an Event
Avsar offers various packages for small and large events - be it Gujarati style full meal plans or street food for casual gatherings.
According to the Indian calendar, the festival of Uttarayan marks the beginning of winter changing into summer and signals the farmers that the sun is back and that harvest season is approaching which is called Makara Sankranti. During the festival, local food such as Undhiyu (a mixed vegetable including yam and beans), sesame seed brittle and Jalebi is served to the crowds.
Uttaran or Uttarayan is one of the festivals that is celebrated with great fervour across India and particularly in Ahmedabad and other cities across Gujarat. ‘Kaai-ppo-ccheee‘ a word that conquers terraces of Ahmedabad and other cities across Gujarat and Mumbai on January 14th each year and like any festival how can good food be far behind?
