Color Me Food: Top 5 Holi Recipes 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.









1) Gujiya

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.
