Festival of Colors With Foodiemonday

Holi is a spring festival, also known as the Festival of colors or the festival of sharing love. It is an ancient Hindu religious festival which has become popular with non-Hindus in many parts of South Asia, as well as people of other communities outside Asia. The Holi festival has further cultural significance. It is the festive day to end and rid oneself of past errors, to end conflicts by meeting others, a day to forget and forgive. People pay or forgive debts, as well as deal anew with those in their lives. Holi also marks the start of spring, and for many the start of the New year.

Inside homes, people stock up on pigments, food, party drinks, Specially Thandai and festive seasonal foods such as Gujiya, Mathri, Malpuas and other regional delicacies. There is no tradition of holding Puja, and the day is for partying and pure enjoyment. Children and young people form groups armed with dry colors, colored solution, the means to fill and spray others with colored solution (Pichkaris), Water balloons filled with colored water, and other creative means to color their targets.

This is a giant #Holispecial Collection by #Foodiemonday Team, and We are so so happy to share this Collection with all of you!!! Check out Each and Every Unique recipes to try in this Holi and Lets Enjoyyyy this Colorful festival with peace, joy and Loads of Love :)
