The 5 Best Dishes You Must-Try This Holi In Mumbai

25 Feb, 2018 by Mini Ribeiro

The spring festival, Holi, is about colours, but incomplete without Gujiya, Kanji Vadas, Dahi Bhalle and Thandai. Holi, like all other Indian festivals, is about eating and merriment. Traditional sweets and savoury dishes have always been associated with Holi, but to break the monotony and shed the image of these being rich and sinful, a fun and modern twist is being given by chefs. Traditional flavours are thus being offered, yet, with a creative spin. So this Holi, indulge in 5 dishes in Mumbai that will instantly get you into the festive mood. 

Thandai Kulfi Panna Cotta With Bourbon Caramel at Hoppipola, Khar

Holi is unimaginable without Thandai in some form. Thandai Kulfi Panna Cotta With Bourbon Caramel seems like the perfect way to savour the thandai flavours and yet not as the usual drink. The Bourbon Caramel compliments the storing thandai flavours, giving the necessary relief to the palate and a high that is unparalleled.

Filled with the goodness of cheese and with jalapeno lending a tart and crunchy flavour, this is a Gujiya which screams innovation.
