Every festival calls for good food and each festival comes with its own special treat. We are a country filled with food lovers. We can hardly ever get enough of it. Holi also comes with a whole of fried and sweet snacks that make us super indulgent. During festivals, we only worry about what to wear, where to eat, what to eat and how to enjoy, we don’t worry about the calories and just enjoy. This Holi, let’s do a roundup of all our favorite snacks and indulge in a few of them too!

1) Ghujiya

Ghujiya is the ultimate fried snack. It is a crispy snack prepared with semolina or wheat pastry sheets stuffed with an assortment of fillings ranging from dried fruits, nuts, coconut, and dipped in honey. Ghujiya is literally the indulgent snack of our dreams. People nowadays have started preparing this delicious snack with chocolate and nuts to cater to millennial taste buds.

2) Thandai

Thandai is a cold milk preparation made with a special blend of dried fruits, nuts, hemp leaves, and a dash of saffron. The cold milk preparation is an absolute favorite and people wait to enjoy this treat during the Holi every year.

3) Shakarpara

Shakarparas are diamond-shaped fried crisps glazed with sugar. These deep-fried snacks are enjoyed with tea. A salty version of this snack called Namakpara is also made similarly glazed with spices and eaten just by itself or with tea.

4) Malpua

Malpua is so decadent and rich, just looking at pictures can make you hungry. Malpua is made with malai, paneer, ragi fried in ghee and dipped in sugar syrup topped with chopped nuts and saffron.
