Let’s play holi, this year in the most beautiful way ever, with colours of love, blossoms from spring, and amazing feast from our own traditional kitchens…
With the passing by winters and the onset of mild summers, and Annual Exams around , the memories of mumma and maamiji (aunt) sitting together for whole day, helping each other to make gujiya, and thandai and other snacks for the festival day, brings back that tenderness in my thoughts and feels like a child when I look at my plate of gujiyas. Only participation we had as kids was, sneaking into the kitchen to grab whatever we could from the door of the kitchen itself. Mom had a very simple way of doing things and efficiency with which she would make them , comes after years of work, which I am yet to achieve. I still have the recipe written by her, with all her do’s and don’ts in my book, which is like a script and the worn out pages make me nostalgic at the sight of it. Have tried to share all with you, and believe me Lists not difficult to get some of them ready at home… . I relive these memories by preparing all what mom does, and my kids lending me a hand , relishing homemade stuff.
Holi is a festival of colours and start of summer season in North of India,. Festival is typically celebrated
with a spread of a feast and special treats. All of these as a tradition are made at home as a part of family celebration of the festive fun. Gujiya are semicircle stuffed pastries, filled with Khoya and Dryfruits.
