Pharah (steamed Lentil Indian Momo)
Pharah is traditional recipe of Bihar and uttarpradesh. It is a main course recipe and is usually served for lunch or dinner along with a spicy curry and Kheer.Although it can be made throughout the year but it is generally eaten on festivals like ‘Bhaiya duj’j, or during’ sawan ka mahina ‘(which is typically from august to September) or ‘kartik ka mahina’ ( which starts after Durga puja and ends after a month). In Hindu religion these mahina (Months) are considered as pious and hence people do not have non vegetarian food. Hence recipes like Pharah or dal ki puri or gobhi ke parathe are served.
