Indian festivals are just just another reason to reunite with your family and friends, have tons of fun, endless laughter, forget every diet and devour some of your favourite foods and sweets. One such upcoming festival is the festival of colours, Holi. While we absolutely cannot choose the best dishes for Holi, we have curated a list of snacks and mithais that you cannot miss making and relishing this festival season. So, what are you waiting for?
Gujiya are half moon shaped fried flaky pastry made using refined flour, sooji, ghee and filled with sweet filling made with khoya, nuts and dry fruits. Gujiya are especially made during holi, teej and chath pooja in India. Recently, gujiya have also been baked for health concerns instead of being fried. They can also be made with variations like chocolate, coconut, jaggery and even Nutella.
We really do not think any festival is complete without some piping hot kachoris. Kachoris are round, flat, flaky pooris made with stuffing of usually moong dal, onions or peas. Kachoris make extensive use of spices especially hing which ensures easy digestion of this heavy snack. Shop for 100% natural and organic Tassyam Hingwale Hing to bring out the best flavour in your kachoris.
3. Dahi Bhalla
Dahi Bhalla is a popular North Indian snack made using vada, papdi, curd, tamarind chutney, boiled potatoes, green coriander chutney and lot of spices for garnish and flavour. The vada is made using soaked urad and moong dal, which is made into a fine paste and then fried like fritters or pakoras. Just like kachoris, dahi bhalla makes good use of hing to avoid acidity and gas. Add extra flavour on your dahi bhallas by sprinkling some Tassyam Dahi Bhalla Masala on top.
