Recently a press company reached out to me to do some work for the upcoming Holi Festival. So, I’ve decided to share one of my favourite Recipes as well as one that has been sent to me.
What is the Holi Festival;
I’ll be honest at first I knew very little about Holi just simple knowledge I had acquired while speaking to certain people. When I received the email from Spring and Tonic PR I straight away was interested as Indian cuisine is one of my favourites, I jumped straight onto good old Google to learn a bit more about Holi. Below I have published a segment from the Independent which has some information on Holi.
Independent; ‘Holi is a Hindu festival that marks the arrival of spring. Known widely as the Festival of Colour, it takes place over two days, and is a celebration of fertility, colour, and love, as well as the triumph of good versus evil.’
‘People take part in Holi all around the world, but it is celebrated the most in parts of India and Nepal. It is often associated with the coloured powders that end up coating its participants after they’ve thrown them at each other. But this is just one part of Holi, which is split into two events: Holika Dahan and Rangwali Holi.’
So, the reason they’ve contacted me is that they are working with Kingfisher who themselves are the leading Indian Beer. The sent me a box of goodies which had 12 bottles of Kingfisher beer, some Holi Paint and a few recipes. Over the past few days I have done some of the recipes as well as my personal curry recipe, I have also drank a few bottles of beer.
