Out of all the Indian festivals, Holi is my absolute favorite! It is the festival of colors after all! Growing up in India, that was one day, where everyone could officially go crazy, and get away with it. I still remember how the day before Holi used to go in buying every possible color powder I could find in the stores, and, getting my water guns ready for the big day.  I remember waking up before everyone else in the house, with sheer excitement of the day ahead!

The one thing that’s common in all Indian festivals, is a variety of amazingly delicious food. Every region in north India has their own spin on holi delicacies. From savory delicacies to mouth-watering desserts, it is a day spent in food heaven:-) My personal favorite of all these recipes is homemade Gujiya! I could just make a meal out of it 🙂 I used to make Gujiya the traditional way, the way my mother-in-law taught me, stuff them and fry them to a golden brown perfection. But past few years, I have been baking them instead of frying them and my kids love it. They love the flaky pastry and the yummy gujiya filling in every bite. And a big plus is that it is super easy and mess free to make. You can check out the recipe for fried and baked Gujiya underneath. Sharing some of my favorites with you!

Here are 25+ recipes to add to your Holi menu, and the best part is, most of them can be done in under 30 minutes, so that you spend less time cooking, and more time enjoying them! Spice Cravings wishes you all a very Happy Holi!
