The “Festival of Colors” is here, apart from colors, pichkaris, rangoli and unlimited fun, another thing that makes Holi a much-awaited festival is the wide variety of dishes that are especially prepared for this occasion. We bring to you the trademark dishes that have become synonymous with Holi
1. Gujiyas – The definition of Holi for many, these sugar syrup dripped delicacies filled with khoya and dry fruits mixture are impossible to resist. For the calorie conscious folks, here is a tip, bake these after brushing it with some oil and eat your heart out without any regrets
2. Malpuas – A Holi celebration is incomplete without this traditional sweet of north India. Malpua is a pancake like Indian dessert, fried in ghee and dipped in sugar syrup. For guilt-free eating, try Ragi Malpua made with ragi flour, whole wheat and oats, it is significantly low on calories
3. Thandai with Bhaang– The staple food of Holi, this intoxicating drink is the primary catalyst behind Holi being a no-holds barrier festival. It is generally served cold, hence, it is prepared beforehand and stored. Enjoy Holi in the spirit of “Bura Na Mano Holi”
4. Dahi Vada/Dahi Bhalla – The dish that gives much-needed respite from the spate of ghee/sugar soaked and heavy on the stomach dishes. Vadas soaked in dahi with the topping of imli chatni are prepared in every Holi celebrating household across the country.
5. Phirnis – Phirnis and Holi go hand in hand. The smell of the kasoras dipped in water is a Bliss. With varied options like the one with roses, berries and fruits, nuts and plain, you will keep craving for more.
