Posted on: 22-04-2017 , 05:41:PM | DY365 Bureau

 India is a land of many beliefs and as many superstitions.  Some age-old superstitions have been so deeply ingrained in our mind and in our heart since childhood that we often tend to given in to these beliefs to try our luck. Here are top few superstitions related to food that all of us may have believed in or perhaps still do.

Hanging lemons and 7 green chilies outside shops   

You must have spotted the combination of lemons and chillies tied outside the gates of shops. Sour and pungent foods are used to keep evil energies away and prevent them from entering your space.

We don't know how true that is but this age old belief may help keep the pests away! The cotton thread used to pierce the chillies and fresh lemons absorbs the acid from the fruit and the aroma it spreads helps in keeping the insects away.

Using ghee for diyas

Another sacred ingredient amongst Hindus is ghee. It is believed that instead of oils, lighting diyas with ghee can bring in positive energies, and keep the evil energies away.

Eating curd before heading out for an important task

Remember the days when your mother would feed you a spoonful of curd and sugar for good luck before you head out for an exam or an interview? The age old practice has been explained in the Vedic scriptures with a rather convincing logic. When you are tensed, it can take a toll on your stomach too. Yogurt is a probiotic and has a cooling effect while a little bit of sweetness has always known to be soothing.
