Jaipur, famously known as “Pink City” is all about festivals and celebrations. The month of saawan brings the festival of ‘Teej’ which is mostly popular among the women population of Rajasthan. This festival has a great religious significance. Teej will be celebrated on 12th August in every part of Rajasthan this year. The strings for the festival, vibrant lehriyas, hands ornamented with mehandi, those solah somwars and rousing sinjara for newly-weds are all a part of the festival but what pullouts to its lifeblood are these disc-shaped delicious sweet cake “Ghevar”.
