Thanksgiving treats !

Thanksgiving is an 'all American' festival, just like Diwali or Pongal of India. Thanksgiving day is a day of abundance and conveying thanks to God, family and friends. Here we symbolize the day with whole baked turkey, pumpkins, cranberry, pomegranate, sweet potato, breads, abundant fruits, pies, cakes , pretty tables, family gatherings, hosting dinners etc. I fuse Indian and American views to celebrate thanksgiving every year. Instead of the enormous turkey (more than enough for us) I make a turkey briyani or whole roasted chicken. Also some desserts based on carrot, pumpkins will be in my menu. I strongly encourage anyone from any country to celebrate this beautiful festival with the best dishes from their country. True thanksgiving day lies on the way we thank God and everything else is a gift from God!
