Ladoo for Besnu Ceremony

By Rita Jamshed Kapadia 2 comments

Besnu ceremony is performed when a baby is able to sit (approximately at 7 months of age).

The child is seated on a “Patla” (little stool)and ladoos are placed around him/her.

Some folks touch one ladoo to the babies feet and feed a little of it to the baby.

“Tili” is put on the forehead and garland on him/her and auspicious chowk, sagan ni ses is prepared.

Cash and gifts are then given to the child by parents, grandparents and family members.

Here are different ladoo recipes:
