Ah, we love Holi! Let’s get drenched in mouth-watering delicacies |Jaipur Beat

With the outburst of Coronavirus, everyone is rethinking about their Holi plans. Who would know that the disease will spread like a bushfire and blot out every major event leaving us all bummed out, especially when Holi is around the corner?

The first festival of the New Year that excites every soul in India thinking of ways to play Holi with friends and family, targeting that one person who refuses to play, all and all having a ball of a time. The children too are super excited to try their colour-filled hands on everyone’s faces but alas all the enthusiasm has been washed out by the sudden outbreak of Corona Virus.

But if we look at the bright side we all got a chance to play Holi like we used to in our childhood days. Yes, you guessed it right, Pichkaris! As the infection spreads with touching you can avoid playing with your hands and instead use pichkaris and water balloons.

Still, if you want to be on the safer side and avoid playing Holi this year, well worry no more because where there is a will, there is definitely great food! As with the celebration, we also look forward to binge eating all mouth-watering delicacies unique to this occasion prepared by our sweet mommy.

No one can imagine Holi without the ever delicious sugar syrup dripping gujiyas. Native to Rajasthan, gujiyas are sweet dumpling filled with yummy cardamom flavoured mawa and dry fruits are specially made on Holi.image1_tonemapped

Along with gujjiya’s you can also prepare moong dal ka halwa, gulab jamun and shahi tukda that’ll just make your festival hip and happening.

Another Holi munching treat is stacking up the plates with crunchy besan garlic papad to balance off all the sweetness. As Indians are very fond of Papads it is a perfect snack to indulge in.

No one can miss the classic Holi special recipe made with milk, nuts and spices like saffron, fennel– Thandai!

Thandai

Don’t miss to try some colourful mocktails perfect for the spring season.

6 Reasons Why You Should Not Miss Playing Holi

Holi, the joyous festival of colours and celebrations is one of the most awaited festivals in Jaipur. Everywhere you can spot Jaipurites purchasing different shades of colours, pichkaris and how can we miss everyone’s favourite water balloons! In every temple, you can see Phaag utsav being celebrated with great razzmatazz.

You must be thinking that every Jaipurite loves this festival, you got that wrong! Some people believe that the colours of Holi are not good for the skin and they are harmful to the environment too. But guess, what with proper precautions taken, this festival is as healthy as you can think. Here are the reasons why.

–          Playing Holi makes you summer ready

6 Things to Eat and Enjoy on Holi

Think of Holi celebrations and the delicious stuffed gujiyas, crispy mathris and shakkar paras automatically start tempting your taste buds. Remembering the times when our dadi nani used to lay out a drooling platter of Holi snacks already a day before the celebrations and we could not hold our temptations till the day.  Here we are listing out some of the most signature Holi snacks and cuisines that’ll make your celebrations even more fun. And if you are planning to host a holi party at home, then this handy list will help you.
Enjoy these toothsome and lip smacking signature cuisines while enjoying the frolic and festivities of holi !

1) Gujiya

image1_tonemapped
No one can imagine a Holi bash without the ever delicious sugar syrup dripping gujiyas.
Native to Rajasthan, gujiyas are sweet dumplings made of all purpose flour and filled with yummy cardamom flavoured mawa and dry fruits. Wait no more, and order it from LMB that will leave your mouth relishing its taste forever. Order now !

2) Phirniphirni 2
The inviting smell of condensing milk and cardamom is a total bliss. Phirnis and Holi always go hand in hand, isn’t it? Well how do you like your phirni? With nuts, Fruits and berries, Roses or Plain… do let us know in the comment box

3) Crisp handy snacks

image3_tonemapped
Holi is the festival where everyone gets hungry after every round of color playing. Stacking up the plates with besan garlic papad, some shakkar Paras and Namak Paras has always been the best holi munching treat.

4) Bhaang and thandai

 

 


Bhaang is a popular intoxicating drink termed as the best prashaad from Lord Shiva. Our Bollywood has made it even more prominent drink during the festival of Holi.  Other delights prepared from bhang can be Bhang ke Pakodey, Bhang ki chutney, Bhang Ice cream and Bhang Thandai.

 

5) Chaat Twister

golgapppa

The younger version of crunchy golgappe, sizzling tikkis and cottony bhallas are hard to resist on Holi. A sweet cheat too helps vodka lovers; it is always fun to substitute the paani with our preferred brand.
Don’t worry, elders would never know this 😉

6) Sweets

Can’t really resist from having sweets on the festival of Holi? Relish on gulab jamun, shahi tukda or moong dal ka halwa and make your festival hip and happening.

15 Bollywood Songs Of 2015 To Dance On This Holi

You have invited all your friends to your Holi bash, colors are ready, menu is ready but is your dance playlist ready? Chances are that you have forgotten this super important detail! If you do not have a peppy dance playlist for a Holi party then the party will lose half of its fun. After all what’s a party without some heavy duty music?

We Jaipurites listen to all kinds of music but when it comes to electric events, Bollywood dance numbers are our jam. We are sure that you liked our Holi songs list but there’s no rule that only Holi songs have to be played in a Holi party. It’s the festival of multiple colors so you should also have all kinds of songs with you. There are so many amazing dance songs in Bollywood and here are 15 of the top foot-tapping numbers from this year and last year to set the mood of your party-

1. High Heels- Ki And Ka

The old version of this song by Honey Singh has been renewed this year to give us a brand new dance number. It has sassy beats and funky lyrics.

JB

2. Kar Gai Chull- Kapoor And Sons

Another popular song remixed to suit the boho tastes. This song is everywhere these days and even we can’t get enough.

JB

3. Kheech Meri Photo- Sanam Teri Kasam

The movie might have gone unnoticed but not this quirky number! This one is perfect for the selfie-obsessed generation.

JB

4. Humne Pee Rakhi Hai- Sanam Teri Kasam

Everybody gets drunk with the joy of Holi and to add to the fun, there is bhang- a Holi essential! We are not saying that you should not be afraid of ‘100 Number’ but you should enjoy for sure.

JB

5. Sooraj Dooba- Roy

This peppy number perfectly conveys the party-spirit. Parties are meant to have fun and forget about the real-life problems, right?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJZcbidTutE

JB

6. Afghan Jalebi- Phantom

We wish there was a Gujiya song too but this Jalebi song is no less. It might make you crave for the sweet-treats but at least you will be burning those calories while dancing to this song.

JB

7. Dard Karaara- Dum Laga Ke Haisha

Add a dash of nineties to your Holi with this number. Show some silly old-time moves and dance like there is no tomorrow.

JB

8. Gallan Goodiyan- Dil Dhadakne Do

A party song for the whole family! This one is also great for variation- play it when you are tired to restore your energy.

JB

9. Gulabo- Shaandaar

Splash pink all around while dancing with Alia and Shahid on this one!

JB

10. DJ Waley Babu

We know that this is not a Bollywood song but can you imagine any hip-party without this number by Badshah? We certainly can’t.

JB

11. Nachan Farratey- All Is Well

Pump it up to the dhol and shake your body to the beats. This is a superb song to perk up your spirits.

JB

12. Banno Tera Swagger- Tanu Weds Manu Returns

You will need all the energy in the world to keep up with the pace of this song. Everybody has swag after all!

JB

13. Birthday Bash- Dilliwali Zalim Girlfriend

This song is perfect for not only birthdays but for any party. It will make you dance whether you agree with the lyrics or not.

JB

14. Aj Ki Party- Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Any list referring to Bollywood is incomplete without Salman Khan so here is a funky number for all the party goers.

JB

15. Daddy Mummy- Bhaag Johnny

Let Johnny run away while you groove to this one. We are not sure if you would want your Daddy Mummy to see you though!

JB
