Are we even talking about a festival if we don’t mention food? Festive occasions anywhere around the world seem incomplete without good food. A wholesome menu has the power to lift everyone’s mood. Also, we tend to look for easy-peasy snack ideas for our menus. Don’t we? And, with the festival of Holi just days away we have curated a list of about five finger foods that would certainly gift you with maximum taste in minimum ingredients. You can pair them with thandaai, jaljeera, masala chaach or simply the cup of your favourite hot beverage.
1. Bhang Ki Pakori
Let’s hit the Holi list with this recipe that can be prepared in under 30 minutes. Bhang is a popular intoxicating drink savoured during this festivity. However, you can make bhang ki pakodi and enjoy the occasion with your loved ones. Just make some crunchy pakodas dipped in gram flour with a hint of cannabis leaves (bhang). Serve it hot with green chutney.
2. Cheese Balls
Do you love to savour cheese in every form? If yes then try this out once and you’ll not regret it. These indulgent cheese balls are flaky and crispy on the outside, however, they are soft and gooey on the inside. So, without waiting much, cheese lovers can add this recipe for their Holi celebrations.
3. Fried Onion Rings

You can prepare this in a jiffy in not more than 15 minutes. Pair it with a nice flavourful chutney and have a good time at home.
4. Green Peas Kebab
This makes for an ideal snack for any house parties or social gatherings. This food item is prepared with nutritious green peas, some flour and a bunch of spices all mixed together to create this one. It’s shallow-fried and could be a healthy alternative for snacking on the occasion.
