Raksha Bandhan is an auspicious Indian tradition that is celebrated every year in August. Every year, the tradition of Raksha Bandhan is celebrated to strengthen the bond between a brother and a sister in the household. Every year during the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, a sister ties an amulet, known as Rakhi, to her brother as a symbol of protection.
After tying the Rakhi knot, the brother has to offer a gift to his sister at the end of each Raksha Bandhan ritual. Sweet products are mainly the choice of gifts to offer during the Raksha Bandhan ritual with milk chocolate being the most popular choice. Raksha Bandhan 2022 will be celebrated on the date of 11th August which falls on a Thursday.
Every year, Indian households celebrate this tradition by bringing together their complete family to honour the sacred bond between a brother and sister. The Raksha Bandhan tradition also gives an opportunity to create various sweet recipes for the whole family. In this article, we are going to look at various festive sweet recipes that can be prepared for the occasion of Raksha Bandhan 2022.

Kheer is a type of pudding that goes well with any type of celebration or auspicious occasion in Indian households. Kheer is a delicious dessert that can be savoured by all family members during the festive season. Usually, kheer is made by boiling milk, sugar and rice to create a creamy textured dessert. However, you can substitute the rice with Aashirvaad atta to create a wholesome blend of flavourful desserts for the Raksha Bandhan 2022 eve.
