Holi is almost approaching, and it is time to get ready to celebrate this day to the fullest. Alongside the splash of colors and good vibes, delicious food is also a significant part of Holi. Read this blog, where we bring you five mouthwatering ready-to-eat dishes from Bombay Kithen’s product range that will surely make the celebrations of Holi special and enjoyable.

Holi, the much-awaited festival of colors, is almost knocking on the door, and you are undoubtedly gearing up for the fun-filled celebrations. This beautiful occasion brings families and friends together to celebrate in the spirit of love and unity amidst the joyous atmosphere with bright and vibrant colors. The traditions of Holi are deeply rooted in Indian mythology, and two historical incidents are associated with this festival. 

The first one is the story of King Hiranyakashipu, who happened to seek his sister Holika’s help in killing his son Prahlada, a devotee of Lord Vishnu. As the story goes, Holika covered herself with a cloak and sat on a pyre with Prahlada in an attempt to burn him, but the cloak protected him instead of Holika, and the result was her demise in the fire. Afterward, that night, Lord Vishnu killed King Hiranyakashipu, which has been seen as an episode of the triumph of good over evil. In some places in the present day, a pyre is lit up with fire the night before Holi, known as ‘Holika Dahan,’ symbolizing the burning down of evil and attracting the good. 

Another mythological story related to Holi is about Radha and Krishna. Krishna, as we know, is the Hindu deity and a manifestation of Lord Vishnu himself, who fell in love with Radha, who was a milkmaid. But Krishna’s skin being dark and Radha’s fair complexion made Krishna feel embarrassed about himself. Thus, during a game with Radha and the other milkmaids, Krishna playfully colored her face. This episode is seen as the origin of the involvement of colors on Holi, and the revelry of this festival also upholds the striking characteristic of Lord Krishna, who is known for his plays and pranks.  

Holi is one such Indian festival that we all eagerly wait for because there are no limits to merrymaking on this day. We gather with friends and family, play with colors and have a great time together. In order to elevate the Holi celebrations, delicious food is surely a must because food is what makes all occasions memorable.
