20+ Easy Recipes for Makar Sankranti - Pongal

This year Sankranti is celebrated from Saturday, 14th January 2024 to Tuesday, 17th January 2024

In Telangana, the festival is celebrated over four days:

• Day 1 – Bhoghi
Day 2 – Makar Sankranti, the main festival day January 15th, 2024
• Day 3 – Kanuma
• Day 4 — Mukkanuma

Bhoghi - On this day people discard/repurpose old, broken, and unused items and replacing them or making them into new items.

Makar Sankranti - Makar Sankranti marks the start of longer days. It is also known by various names such as Lohri, and Pongal. People wear new clothes, pray to God, fly kites, and make offerings of traditional food to loved ones who've past on. They also make beautiful Rangoli patterns on the ground with rice flour in front of their homes.

Kanuma - Cattle are the symbolic indication of prosperity and on this day they are showcased with honor. 

Mukkanuma - People in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana do not eat any meat (or fish) during the first three days of the festival and do so only on this day.
