Happy Holi -1

~ Happy Holi - 1 ~

Holi is the spring festival of India . This festival of love
& unity also marks the triumph of good over evil.
Also synonymous with vibrant colors n joy ,
it is the perfect time to renew sweet relationships.
Entire country wears a festive look,the markets
are heaped with colorful powders n water guns
( called pichkaris) . On the day of Holi ,people greet
each other by smearing this colored powder
(called abeer gulal ) . Aromatic sweets n savories
are an integral part of the festivities.

Gujjiya Cupcakes

Round gujjiyas ( Chandrakalas ) , cherries , cupcake liners
Chandrakalas are mawa ( Indian cheese ) & nuts filled circular
gujjiyas dipped in sugar syrup . Recipe (link)

Colorful Rasgullas

Colored sponge rasgullas ( sweet cottage cheese balls ), Recipe
( While dividing the paneer - as per the linked recipe, add edible
color of choice to make colorful rasgullas . Another quick method
- buy readymade rasgullas, remove from syrup n keep aside .
Mix a few drops of edible color to the syrup n soak in the
rasgullas for few hours , but the rasgullas colored by this
method will remain white or will be of a lighter
color from inside. )
