Enjoy traditional meals with Hafele's Vortex Hobs this Holi!

The sound “Holi hai bhai Holi hai!” rings across the streets of India while friends run behind each other with different colours in each fist. May it be red, pink, or yellow gulaal or a permanent purple colour, Holi is the one day when you are permitted to apply colour on people around you. 

On this day, we all symbolise a blank canvas that is ready to be painted on with multiple colours. This festival, a celebration of good over evil, is usually followed by a unique spread of traditional dishes and delicacies on the table. While the first half of the day goes in getting dirty and taking hours to clean up, the second half involves family gatherings and an unforgettable meal.

This year, celebrate your Holi festival with Hafele’s Vortex Hobs and these incredible traditional recipes:
