Well Gujjiyas and dahi wadas are the most traditional way of celebrating Holi with food. It’s these tradition and festivals that leaves us with lots of hope and warmth. Holi is the festival of colors!! And when I talk of colors you guys know how much I love colors!! You can see them on my platter and palate too. Those of you who know me can vouch on that. Well that reminds me that I haven’t uploaded any of my paintings yet!! Will do that soon…These days I am juggling a lot between my projects (will disclose it soon) and my kids exams are approaching…so you all can imagine the pressure I have. Well blogging is something I love to do no matter what and I try and manage to do a festival post with all my passion and love. Having said that I honestly had no plans of making these gujjiyas this year …really!!! Trust me !! Well it so happened that my younger one as always demanded a sweet for the festival as I always prepare one, so I had to fulfill her wish. Initially I thought of making sheera for her as she loves it but then that would have been like any other casual day!! I made gajar ka halwa too (Which I will be posting it soon) and she was like mom this is not special enough for Holi. Uff!! I gave up and finally decided to make gujjiyas. Just thought of adding Nutella to the mawa and dry fruit mixture to see that happy and glowing face of my daughter!! She loves chocolate and what more that this would have made her happiest. Finally I managed to bring a grin on her face and here is wishing you all a super duper HOLI festival.
