Holi recipes

What is holi

Holi is a festival of colors and spring Celebrated in different forms across India, but with the same intensity of joy, togetherness and love. The Holi Festival marks the victory of good over evil, of light over darkness, of positive over negative.

Holi is a festival where people celebrate together without considering caste, color or social status.

I wish everyone a happy and safe Holi this time. As much as I love colors, I also like the festival of Holi, where everyone celebrates and shares warmth, joy, love and happiness.

Here in this post I am sharing 92 Holi recipes made during the Holi festival in different regions of India. These recipes can easily be scaled to feed a lot.

I wish all of our readers a happy Holi.

Note: While playing Holi, it is better to avoid chemical based colors and play with vegetable based or eco-friendly colors. Chemical-based paints can be toxic and difficult to clean later, or irritate or damage the skin.

A common trick people use to minimize the effects of the colors is to smear some mustard oil on their skin before playing holi. This thin layer of oil on the skin ensures that the color falls off the skin easily without rubbing a lot.

Whenever possible, use eco-friendly or vegetable paints that are readily available in the market. Enjoy this festival of colors and spread love and peace around you.

There are some snacks and sweets for Holi that are a must and are traditionally made in North India. Can you imagine Holi without Thandai or Gujiya?

These essential Holi recipes can be found in the list below. Not only are they popular, they are a must during the Holi Festival. These popular Holi recipes contain a varied list of sweets, snacks, and beverages.

Some preplanning is great to make your job easier and save time. As with a samosa or kachori, you can make the filling or batter a day in advance and store it in the refrigerator. Or the Thandai paste can be made and chilled or frozen a few days before the festival.

Do what works best for you and adapt the recipes to the ingredients available in your town.
