    Holi, the popular Indian festival of colors, will soon be here on March 13th. Children have already started planning for it – the colors they'll ask mom to buy and the pichkaris they'll spray their friends with. But aside from all the fun and games, Holi is much loved for one more reason – food! So, what comprises food for Holi?


    When you're planning Holi-special food for your children, there are certain guidelines to remember. The dishes you make should ideally be a fair mix of traditional and modern, colorful to behold, full of flavours and not too time-consuming. After all, you want to be there to play with the kids and not stay cooped up in the kitchen all day long.

    We bring you a set of Holi special food recipes that are sure to win your child's heart and also be easy to whip up. It's time to be the colorful and festive Mommy Chef!
