Bura naa maano Holi hai…it’s a phrase to justify the mischiefs that people play on others on Holi.Oh ! how as kids we used to enjoy the festival of colours, dousing each other with buckets of coloured water, throwing water balloons at people passing through our street and then running and hiding behind trees, aiming water guns and pichkaaris filled with coloured water on our neighbours and that special annoying uncle who used to talk to us rudely all year round. Holi somehow was the day to take vengeance on him because we knew we can play any kind of prank and get away with it. For me Holi conveys love for all and joy.

Holi is not only about the Gulaal and pichkaris which bring vibrant colour in our lives but what makes the day extra special is the delicious spread of Holi dishes which is typical of any Indian festival.Talk of Holi celebrations and we can think of Gujjiyas, Mathris, Masala kachoris, Dahi vadas, Malpuas, Bhaang Pakore and of course Thandai.

 

 

This time as I looked for colourful recipes for our 32nd Foodie Monday Blog Hop as the theme is Festival of Colours , I came across this colourful swirl Mathri recipe from a fellow blogger, Madhulika Vatsal and I knew I had to try these and blog about it.The swirl of colours make it a perfect Holi namkeen recipe.The link below is a video which shows her making these swirl Mathris making it easy for us to know the procedure.
