Read on for some colourfully rainbow-hued recipes, celebrate this beautiful month of love and impress your loved ones! 

  1. Rainbow Sandwich 

Let’s start our article with something light and healthy. This rainbow sandwich can be a great kickstart for your day. Filled with fresh vegetables adorned with delicious mint chutney, mayonnaise and mustard paste, this one gets better with each bite. This rainbow layered sandwich can rejuvenate your body and provide you with vital nutrients for the day too.

  1. Cheese Paneer Fruit Salad

We all think salads are boring and are only a diet food and that is a total myth. Salads are a healthy dish that can be had any time of the day and they are also lip-smackingly awesome. This beautiful salad is one such example with the combination of vibrant colours and deliciousness made with freshly sliced fruits, paneer and feta cheese. 

  1. Rangbirangi Bhel 

Chaat is something every Indian loves, and bhel is such a light and quick chaat that can be made in a matter of minutes. This bhel is such a heart winner with its pleasant colour which will please your eyes and your palate. Varieties of fresh chutney, tanginess of yogurt, and fresh vegetables and sprouts mixed together makes it all the more colourful and appetizing. 

  1. Rainbow Rice 

The name itself is enough to make you crave this dish. We must have had so many types of rice like basmati rice, khichdi rice, brown rice, etc but ever made Rainbow Rice? This power-packed cooked rice is tossed with green capsicum, carrot, corn, and red capsicum, garnished with some lemon juice and coriander to make you fall in love with its simplicity. 

  1. Rainbow Shashlik

Shashlik is quite similar to sheesh kabab where the juicy meat cubes are grilled to perfection. But this Vegetarian Shashlik is made with protein-packed paneer which is grilled with capsicum and tomato, a delicious delicacy to munch on but also looks picture-perfect. So, don’t forget to ‘gram it before you munch on this beauty.

  1. Rainbow Boondi

We all must be well aware of the rainbow cake trends which have been all over social media, but save room from some extremely delicious desi boondi in a unique avatar. Colourful boondis layered on top of one another is a sight to behold. Just wow!

Happy Valentine's Day!
