My 5 Favorite picks for Holi !!

As they descend in hordes, their appetites whetted by playing under the sun for long and their minds intoxicated by the festivities all around, it is time to lay out a sumptuous spread that becomes the talking point for days to come !!

Check out some of my favorites -

1. Dahi Vada / Dahi Bhalle - Black lentils fritters steeped in a thick/thin yogurt preparation, it can either be on the sweeter side or just savoury. Team it up with an Alu dum or/and yellow peas curry and enjoy it in a tyically Odia style.

2. Thandai Kulfi - A delicious twist on the North Indian drink Thandai, this one packs the delectable flavors into Kulfi cones that simply melt on the tongue. ( For the recipe of Thandaii click here.)

3. Alu Papdi / Dahi Papdi Chaat - Simple yet delicious, this street food is an all time favorite with all age groups !! Though the yogurt version is far more soothing on the taste buds, there is a vegan version too for folks who are averse to lactose .

4. Mawa Gujjiya - Another sweet delicacy from the North, this one provides the right balance to the spicy Holi fare. Crispy on the outside and stuffed with rich mawa and dry fruit, it is not to be missed.

5. Jalebi with Rabdi - Hot jalebis served with chilled Rabdi or even ice cream has turned out to be a hot favorite these days. And with RTS mixes easily available these days, it has become quite easy to whip up this delicacy.
