Holi Snacks Recipes

My memories of holi include a bunch of people; our family or friends or neighbors visiting us with packets of colors in their hands. There would be a tray of sweets and snacks that were offered to them. There would be some fresh snacks being prepared in the kitchen which were served to them. Playing holi is tiring and exhausting. Munching a few snacks now and then is a good way to keep up the energy. Therefore snacks and sweets are indispensable for such occasions. There are a number of holi snacks prepared in Indian kitchens for the festivals. The holi recipes include different mathris, sev, namkeen, etc. On Holi different holi snacks are prepared such as kachori, dahi vada, etc.

Here is a collection of Holi Snacks which you can try on this festival:holi snacks

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
