She wrote on the picture ‘#lohricelebration #Sarsonkasaag #makkidiroti (sic)’. Sarson ka saag and makki ki roti is considered a wholesome meal that jeeps you warm in the chilly season. Saag is made with a couple of winter greens like mustard greens, methi, and spinach leaves which helps in keeping one warm and replete with nutrients.topped with white butter instead of regular butter keeps the amount of sodium low, making it good for heart. Shilpa has always been vocal about eating right and seasonal and seems like winter season is the best time to indulge in such hearty goodness!
She also later posted a video of lighting and celebrating around the bonfire with her family, including her daughter Samisha, who celebrated her first Lohri this year.
