observed on the tenth day in the Hindu calendar month of Ashvin. Dasara is also known as Vijayadashami, Dashahra, Dussehra or Dashain. It is observed for different reasons and celebrated differently in various parts of the Indian subcontinent. Today on the occasion of Dasara festival, I am sharing Maharashtrian Kadakani recipe. This is specially prepared at the time of Dasara. Along with kadkani, there are other shapes or ornaments are also offered to Goddess as a part of a tradition.
