Vegetarian recipes for Holi

Holi is all about colours, but like any other Indian festival, the festivities are incomplete without various dishes cooked & shared with our loved ones. These are our favourite ‘Holi Special’ dishes the #ChefInYou must make!

1. Kesariya Thandai

Thandai is mostly associated with Holi and is made using spices, dry fruits and milk. Traditionally, bhang is added to the thandai which makes it intoxicating. It is a cold, refreshing drink and cools down your body. Holi is incomplete without the recipe of this Kesar Thandai!

Pause your diet and make these mathri’s! They’re crispy, flaky and a perfect accompaniment with tea. Serve these to all your guests and enjoy for the days to come, as these mathri’s have a long shelf life.
