Basen cake , this cake is very familiar in our area as it is making after marriage of son or daughter . We say it ”MANDAV THAPTANI” means we are making small plants room to complete some rituals. We are worshiping it in the marriage with giving prasad to it. In so many families rituals of bride grooms are completing there . That is wearing bangles, giving gifts to the parents of so many brides grooms, filling earthen pot with water by singing songs, taking Ukhana means name of husband in the poem or n the song etc . So we call it Mandav pooja. We say this is the ”SHUBH” ritual of every generation . To get next rituals within the time & get blessing to the next generation is the ”Motto” of this rituals .
