It's that time of the year again when you get yourself bathed with color and drench your dear ones in colours. Yes, it is March and time to celebrate Holi, the Festival of Colors. Also known as Vasant Utsav, Holi marks the onset of Spring in India.

It is celebrated in two days.

On the first day, demoness Holika, Hiranyakashipu's sister, is burnt as a huge bonfire at night.

On the second day, people spend the day throwing coloured powder, called gulal and water at each other.

Mom's make lots of special Holi dishes. Some of the popular recipes include :
