Wishing you and you dear and near ones a very Happy Holi. Holi is the Indian festival of colours. Holi Celebrations start with Holika Dahan (bonfire) on the night before Holi where people gather, sing and pray. The next morning is the carnival of colours, where everyone plays, chases and colors each other with gulal (dry colored powder), pichakaris (water guns) and colored water-filled balloons.
Holi brings back lot of childhood memories, we used to shop for our fancy water guns, colours and prepare water bombs (water balloons) a night before Holi. Next day the fight of coloring each other would begin. Friends, relatives would gather on streets and open parks -chase each other to apply colors. Everyone would have colorful faces and clothes with a smile on their faces.
After playing holi and taking the long bath (to remove the colors) we got to eat scrumptious food. Be it tikki, channa chaat, ragda patties or gulab jamuns. I can prepare everything here as well, but nothing beats when your mother cooks- right?
On a sweeter note, below is the collection of quick and easy Holi Sweets.
Happy Holi Once again......
