Baisakhi is one of the biggest religious days for Sikhs as on this day the 10th guru, Guru Gobind Singh, established Khalsa Panth in 1699.
It is also believed that on this auspicious day, Guru Gobind Singh converted his five disciples into Singhs for the first time by giving nectar to them and by admitting them into the martial community.
On this very day, the religion of Sikhism was born and Guru Granth Sahib was established as a religious guide for the community.
Baisakhi or Vaisakhi is celebrated as a festival where people dress up in vibrant coloured traditional outfits and perform bhangra, do kirtan and rejoices to the beats of nagada.
Like any other festival, Baishaki is incomplete without cooking and eating traditional Punjabi food and as we all know Punjabis are famous for their scrumptious delicacies.
Their cuisine offers such a tempting variety of mouth-watering traditional food that you won’t be able to resist once you get to taste these distinct flavours.
So let’s get out there and enjoy their delicacies as we celebrate Baisakhi.
