Holi is nearby and we all have started preparations for this festival. I think Holi is the most enthusiastically celebrated festival in our country. Holi is a festival of colors and i love them too but from last few years I go for homemade colors or you can say chemical free colors. I love to cook food but this year as my son Yuvraj is 3 years old and he has his own specification in all food he eats, thus planning to prepare something different this year. In Market lots of intoxicating drinks and many food items are available but not as pure as earlier it was. So, this time i planned to cook something different for my son.
