Winters are officially here as we can all experience a drastic drop in temperatures, the days get shorter and the nights get longer. With the changing weather, our food preferences also change. We can no longer eat cold drinks and ice cold ice cream sticks and we tend to consume hot soups and comforting halwas. There are certain types of foods that are usually eaten during the winter months. These are seasonal delicacies that are available exclusively during the cold months and are best consumed during this period to achieve maximum nutritional benefits. Mira Kapoor took to Instagram to share some lovely winter treats that she tasted recently. Take a look:

“Winter goodies! Panjiri, Karonda Pickle and the hot sauce that will have a permanent place on my plate,” Mira Kapoor wrote in her Instagram story. Panjiri, also known as Pinni, is a popular dry candy, which is consumed in northern India during the winter months. It is made by toasting whole wheat flour with edible chewing gum, dried fruits, ghee and sugar. Panjiri is said to help generate heat in the body and also ward off seasonal infections. Similarly, Karonda or cranberry is an acidic berry filled with antioxidants and also helps boost immunity in the changing season. Karonda is a sour and sharp winter jam that is consumed in households across the country.
These are not the only winter joys that Mira Kapoor has pampered herself with. Since she is a Delhi girl, she has a great fondness for everything that is wintery, such as green leafy vegetables. Recently, the diva posted a story about a hearty and delicious Saag that she ate for lunch. She called it her favorite winter treat and wrote, “My favorite season and favorite vegetable! I eat this every other day for lunch in the winter. When it gets colder, it will add Makai Roti and God.” Take a look:
