According to the Indian calendar, this year the festival of Makar Sankranti will be celebrated on 15 January. Makar Sankranti is considered to be the biggest first festival of the year. This festival has great religious significance in the Hindu religion.

If beliefs are to be believed, it is considered auspicious to donate after bathing in a holy river on this day. Kharmas ends on the day of Makar Sankranti and the auspicious works which were banned for a month start again. There is a tradition of eating things made of sesame and jaggery on this day. Due to this, people prepare all kinds of dishes with Gajak.

Although everyone likes to eat Gajak, but today's children do not like it. In such a situation, you can prepare cupcakes for your child with the help of sesame seeds.
