Holi is one such day when colouring your hand in pink, green and red colours feels apt and perfect. For those who are die-hard fans of this festival of colours, by afternoon they’d have problems recognising themselves in the mirror. Colours aside, food forms an important part of the festivities as well, what with people indulging in mouth-watering delicacies such as gujiyas and malpuas on this day.
And this is how we have been celebrating Holi over the years, or rather this is the way Bollywood has taught us to celebrate Holi.
As India is all set to celebrate one of the biggest festivals of the year, Holi, on March 2 when there’s no missing out on yummy gujiyas and refreshing thandais, all the fun and frolic can get pretty tiring, and one can understand if cooking a sumptuous meal for friends and family can prove to be an arduous task.
