Lohri Farzified at Farzi Cafe


Lohri is a South Asian bonfire festival and a seasonal celebration which originated in Punjab, NorthIndia. Falls on 13th of January every year , a day before Makra Sankranti.This date marks the coldest day in northern India and the winter solstice – the shortest day and longest night – as well as the start of the harvest season.

So when you have such a small day you have to do what you wish to do quickly and have a great good night sleep. My way of making a day worth it is , to pick a place that serves you good food , as food makes for every celebration as a special day. So here I am at Farzi Cafe having the Lohri special Menu , and trust me a Lohri lunch with a curated menu is a great way of having a Happy Lohri.
