Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is one of the most widely celebrated festivals of the country. This year, Raksha Bandhan coincides with Independence Day. Rakhi celebrates the solemn bond of brother and sister. Just like all Indian festivals, Rakhi too is associated with a lot of decadent food and pure indulgence. Since Rakhi usually falls on 'Poornima' (full moon night), many Hindus tend to eat vegetarian that day. And if you are thinking how to indulge and feast on the 'limited' vegetarian options, then we must tell you that there are ideas galore. Even among starters, you can take your guests by surprise by serving them vegetarian kebabs! Yes, you heard us! You thought kebabs are supposed to be meaty and robust? Wait until you try these vegetarian kebab recipes.
