Street vendors that put up kiosks at the Kumbh Mela prepare to revitalise drinks, candies, and delicacies. Tourists indulge in native cuisines at the eateries to sate their appetites. However, a celebration meal known as Mahaprasada serves the auspicious foods of the rituals.
The wonderfully delicious prasad, which is cooked with milk and dried fruits and is typically a sweet like halwa and laddoo, is thought to be the god’s blessing. Volunteers from the group offer to work together to make the prasad and give it to every pilgrim who is there.
Additionally, a community feast is planned for the priests and the hungry and destitute travellers. It is known as Langar. The food at Langar is prepared and served by volunteers and paid for by donations from different families and communities. All recipes are entirely vegetarian and without any meat because people disapprove of any kind of animal abuse.
