Indian Holi Food
Of course Holi is well most well known for the colorful powders and water which people douse one another in, but the savory and sweet favors and aromas of food are just as joyous and just as important. The classic Holi food is the Gujiya/Gujia, a deep fried dumpling stuffed with milk solids, fruits and nuts, and warm spices like cardamom and nutmeg. One must assume the Gujiya has been either hidden away or already eaten by the photographer as only the samosas, saag paneer, paneer pakora, biriyani, chicken karahi, naan, and gulab jamun remain.
