holi recipes

holi is one festival in which people celebrate together without bringing the caste, color or status in mind.

holi is a festival of colors celebrated all around india in different forms but with the same intensity of joy, togetherness and love. this year holi festival is falling on 2nd march, 2018.

here are a few recipes from my website that are usually made in my home during holi festival. sharing with all of you. please click on the pictures to visit the recipe post. you can also check this collection of 20 special recipes for holi festival.

note: while playing holi, its better to avoid hard colors and play with soft colors like gulal. but some people deliberately use strong hard color which is difficult to clean later on and spoil the skin. one common trick which people use to minimize the effect of hard color is to rub mustard oil in their skin before going out to play holi. the thin layer of oil on the skin make sure that the hard color goes off from the skin easily without much rubbing. if possible then use eco friendly colors which are easily available in the market.
