It was holi yesterday in India, an occasion when people of all walks of life revel in the madness of playing colors. Holi is just like any other festival celebrated in India with a great fanfare. People bond with each other over the festivity of food, colors and subsequent fun filled games.
I am not very fond of colors, having played holi very occasionally once or twice in childhood. After that growing up, I stopped playing holi for the difficulty involved later on in removing the colors from face. That was the most toughest part, besides tending to my daily activity with residues of colors still making its presence known in bits and patches all over my body was not something I relished really. So while staying in India, I made sure not to step out of home on the day of holi. For lovers of colors, I might appear a party-pooper but can't help it. I simply don't like the itchy feeling that smearing of colors leaves. Nevertheless keeping my personal feeling about colors aside, let me wish you my dear friends and readers a very big bright happy holi. Hope you all have enjoyed it a lot.
Though I wanted really to post some recipes appropriate for holi but couldn't manage time to prepare anything fancy over last few days. May be I would post some later in the year under sweet section. Meanwhile, enjoy the chicken potato tart I cooked last week. These mini tarts are ideal for a party at home in place of pizzas.
