Christmas celebrations are always a family affair and each family has its own special baked, steamed, savoury and sweet dish.

A traditional X'mas spread always includes recipes passed down through the generations.

It could be a traditional Minced Pie, Stuffed Turkey, Pork Vindaloo, Roasted Chicken or Apple Pie.

How can one forget the delicious Mangalorean Chicken Curry and Sanna or Kerala's Fish Moilee and Duck Curry?

A Goan Christmas spread would definitely include Baath and Dodol, and the rich Fruit Cake is very popular in Kolkata.

The Chicken Biryani is also an all-time favourite and no dinner is complete without the traditional Plum Cake.

Christmas is also about indulging in sweets, especially the traditional X'mas Pudding and Ginger Bread Cookies.

From Marzipans to Kulkus, Rose Cookies to Bebinca, Guava Cheese, Milk Cream and Yule Log, no celebration is complete without sweets.

We ask you, Dear Readers to share your special Christmas recipes.

It could be a secret recipe handed down by your mother or grandmother or your modern take on a traditional dish.
