It’s finally that time of the year when you scrounge around your wardrobe for your old white clothes for the big day. Old white clothes, discarded buckets and oils to protect our hair are all we look for as prerequisites. Needless to say, the markets full of pichkaris, eco-friendly gulaal and water balloons have already begun setting the vibe for Holi. Along with all these, a foodie heart will always look forward to the assortment of foods and beverages up for grabs in the festival. The tiring celebrations require us to load up on foods and refreshing beverages to rejuvenate ourselves. Along with the foods relish during the celebrations, a wholesome lunch after and a good nap is equally essential. And can we miss including some delectable goodies post the celebrations? Absolutely not. So, here’s a fully planned vegetarian lunch menu for Holi.


• Paneer Tikka

One of the best vegetarian starters, paneer tikka is all things decadent and lip-smacking. Serve them to your family and friends post your Holi celebrations with a green chutney on the side and we are sure they’ll love it.

• Grilled Potato Skewers

Amp up your regular potatoes by marinating them with pesto and then grilling them to perfection. Follow the recipe below ‘to the T’ for a delicious potato starter.


• Veg Biryani

Biryani lovers must be dancing by now and we know a plate of biryani will be the best option to load up on after the celebrations. Try veg or paneer Biryani along with a gravy on the side and you’ll keep drooling over it.

• Mushroom Butter Masala

Creamy, aromatic and delicious, mushroom butter masala will deliciously compliment a plate of Biryani. Follow the recipe below to make it at home.

• Veg Hyderabadi

Flavourful with a hint of spice, veg Hyderabadi is a great option when it comes to pairing it up with Biryani. The delicious melange of veggies along with the creamy gravy is perfect to satiate your palate. 


• Gujiya

Can we even imagine celebrating Holi without gujiyas? Probably not. The crispy gujiyas with the flavourful stuffing are enough to spruce up your dessert menu.

• Gajar Ka Halwa

As we bid adieu to winters, loading up on gajar ka halwa is a great idea to reminisce the chilly days. The lip-smacking halwa with the aroma of cardamom is perfect to end the meal on a sweet note.
