‘Satain‘(7th day after Rakshabandhan) or saatam aatham is an important Sindhi festival.We celebrate this festival just before Janamashtami. This day we pray to Goddess Jogmaya or Sheetla mata for good health and prosperity. Thaar maata Thaar is a popular folk song with this festival.Mothers sing this prayer for the safety of kids from deadly diseases like small pox and measles. We observe ‘Thado’.It means we consume cold food that day.As a mark of respect,we do not light the stove that day.Food is cooked a day earlier.Mitho lolo-sweet flatbread is one of the main recipes prepared for the festival.
Especially prepared are Sindhi flatbreads like Lolo,Chauthe,besani, koki,dal ja parantha.We also make matho, dahi boondi, satpuras,nijji palak etc.We also eat Dahi bade and other milk based sweets like peda,kheer etc.
This is also a great travel recipe.It has natural sugar from jaggery which is also a good source of Iron and the goodness of Ghee for calcium.Also,good for toddlers to chew while teething in small amounts.
