How can we forget about gujiya in Holi? To those who are diet conscious, make these pan flavoured gujiyas and enjoy the festival of colours with taste.
Lawki ka Halwa
We all have heard about gajar ka halwa, but this Holi, try making a healthy one by using bottle gourd. It benefits people who are having the urinary disorder as it contains 98% water. Incorporate your favourite nuts and dry fruits, and rose petals to make it taste better. (Picture Credit: Pinterest)
