Recollecting my childhood days I found cute popsicle bags: ZIPZICLE. Easy to use: just pour, zip, and freeze...and Popsicles are ready. So while it is the festival of holi...it is time to welcome spring and summer. This is the time when flowers will start to bloom and we will see color everywhere. Holi symbolizes prosperity... burn off sorrows in the Holi fire and bring colors in life. While Thandai is the drink of the season, I made Thandai flavored popsicles or chuskis to enjoy with my friends.
I also made some Eco-friendly holi colors with corn starch and food color. I had learned this two years back from one of the Facebook groups, and have made these every year. Here is the recipe to make holi colors at home. Just mix around 1/4 cup water with food color. Add around 3-4 tbsp of corn starch little at a time mixing well. When you have added enough corn starch and mixing becomes difficult, pour the solution on a plastic sheet or cling wrap. Let in dry completely for few hours. Crush into pieces, and grind in a mixer to form a smooth powder. Your holi color is ready to use...HAPPY HOLI!
I used my homemade Thandai Syrup to make Thandai. I poured in ZIPZICLE bags, and froze them. It was easy to make and mess free way to enjoy Thandai popsicle... perfect for the season!
