“Holi – the festival of colours, marks the beginning of spring season and is celebrated for two days. The first day eve begins with a bonfire or Holika dhahan which depicts the victory of good over evil. The next day is the time for playing with colours, greeting friends and sharing sweets with them.” Nostalgia started engulfing me as I narrated them my experiences.
And cooking traditional food during these celebrations could be a great way to stay connected to our roots. I wanted to make a sweet Empanada called Gujiyas/Ghughra/Karanji/Karachika in India for them to compensate for the fun and frolic that we miss here.

“If more of us valued food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a much merrier world.” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien. 27th October 2012 Saturday, quite afternoon, beautiful place, passionate bloggers and a perfect set up for a cheerful evening filled with good food and fun. The grand event was organized by Indi Blogger at ITC Grand Chola in Chennai, India.
“Mom do you know about Chola dynasty?” My son asked me when I was getting ready for the meet. “The dynasty was one of the longest ruling dynasties in Southern India during 13th century and it has gifted India some of the best bronze and stone sculptures” he stated as a matter of fact. These are times I feel I had read my history lessons thoroughly 🙂 Anyways, these pointers were enough for me to appreciate the architect and designs of the property.
