Holi is here! The most popular legend has Krishna smearing colour and splashing water over Radha and her friends playfully. Over time, anyone in the public areas and streets was a fair game to be covered in Gulal, regardless of age, gender or social class.

Natural plant-based colors gave way to synthetic colors, loaded water guns and even eggs. Regardless of the methods, what attracts people all over the world to the festival of colors is its joyful, liberating and childlike spirit.

Here’s an example.

What is a better compliment to all that fun than food? Or as Erin puts it more specifically, “foods that awaken the senses and keep your spirits high??”

The combination of games and sweet foods brings back wonderful, heady memories, doesn’t it? Two of the most favourite foods on Holi come to mind — Badam Kesar Thandai and Mewa Gujia.

Thandai, the word literally translates into ‘something that cools’. The beverage is a sweet, creamy milk drink, with dry fruits and added spices such as saffron (केसर), cardamom (इलायची) and fennel (सौंफ). I found interesting variants, including cocktails, popular across different parts of the country.

Unlike other Indian sweets, this has a unique half-moon form. Gujia is made by frying a maida crust and filled with dry fruits and spices like khoya, almonds, raisins and cardamom. This is a quintessential Indian delicacy with origins and minor variants all across Northern India. At Shadowfax, we did our bit to spread this love by pioneering to deliver sweets, almost 3 years ago. Shadowfax is currently helping Om Sweets deliver 10,000+ orders every month.

We checked with them yesterday and turns out that they are offering at least 8 different flavors of Gujia and 3 different flavors of Thandai, across 12 stores in Delhi NCR.

You could walk-in to any of their stores or get the sweets delivered to your home in NCR. Shadowfax will love an opportunity to be a part of your celebrations. Woot Woot!

Have a sumptuous and colourful Holi! 😉
