Holi hai bhai Holi hai…Bura na mano Holi hai!
The festival of colors that bring in joy, love, happiness and brotherhood is celebrated in almost every part of the country. Different regions have different style of celebrating. Some play with colors where as some play with flowers. Barsane ki Holi is famous in its own way, where men and women gather at a place in the city of Lord Krishna , Mathura, and woman all armed with big sticks beat their husbands who hold shield to protect themselves. It is also known as ‘Lath mar Holi’! Similarly in Rajasthan , Rang panchami is celebrated with zeal and enthusiasm with lots of sweet and savory delicacies which are served to each other to share happiness. One such sweet delicacy from Rajasthan is Mawa Kachori.
Mawa / Khoya is combined with milk solids, grated coconut, lots of dry fruits and nuts along with sugar. This makes a thick filling inside a flattened disk made with flour and then deep frid in low flames. Later dipped in sugar syrup and served during the festivals. Many of my blogger friends are doing Holi Recipe Round Up and asked me to contribute a recipe from my end too. Though i shall also be doing a Holi collection on my blog soon, but for now i would happily contribute this Mawa Kachori recipe to my dear friend Sonal Gupta’s Holi Collection @ Simplyvegetarian777
