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!
2. Puran Poli

Puran Poli is an Indian flatbread stuffed with sweet lentil filling and is traditionally made during festivals and special occasions, especially Holi. Top this with a large dollop of ghee and serve it with Amti and Rice.

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.
While your diet is on hold, make these Gujiyas as well. They are a tradional Holi-special delicacy and are made from thickened milk and dry fruits. And incase you are trying to avoid fried foods, guess what, you can bake them too!
5. Bhang Pakora
If you are not a big fan of thandai, you can try this recipe of piping hot pakoras with just a hint of bhang. And for those of you, who don’t want to consume bhang, just leave it out while making these pakoras!
iChef wishes a very Happy Holi to the #ChefInYou
