40+ Holi Recipes


Out of all the festivals, Holi and Diwali are two which have always been special growing up. Holi probably more so because it was one day the days when you could officially go mad and it was not only ok but there were chances that you will find someone around you who would go crazier than you. A fun filled day pouring with laughter, color and delicious food. The air would be filled with the sound of upbeat bollywood numbers and the aroma of gujiya, besan papdi and gulab jamuns fried in every kitchen in the gully.

Holis here in the US are much different from the ones I grew up celebrating. Not everyone around you in the neighborhood is used to the idea or concept. But that doesn’t stop us from trying to educate them and lure them in with good food and fun. So if you want to spread the love and madness of holi around and kinda looking for a few fun recipe ideas then look no more. What are we here for? We have a list of more than 40 Holi Recipes categorized here for you. Take your pick and enjoy the festival of colors!
