Planning to host a grand Holi party?
If yes, then have a look at these top 5 must haves on the menu for this festival.
How can anyone imagine a Holi bash without some sugar syrup dripping gujiyas.
Native to Rajasthan, gujiyas are sweet dumplings made of maida or flour and filled with a delightful khoya and dry fruits mixture. Deep fried in ghee and dipped in a sugary syrup.
Gujiyas can also be baked, if you are calorie conscious. Just brush them with some oil before putting them in the oven.
Phirnis and Holi go hand in hand. Right? The smell of the kasoras dipped in water. Ah! Bliss.
How do you like your phirni?
