Home » Season & Festivals »

15th August- A day which we all celebrate with utmost pride. When the entire nation is filled with the celebration mood, why not give a patriotic flavor to the food. Celebrate this day with the spirit of nationalism in hearts, digging into the delightful food. We have designed an all-day tricoloured menu for you to enjoy our azaadi in the most perfect way! 

But before that, do you know the significance of our tri-colour?

Saffron: It depicts courage and sacrifice for the country.

White: It signifies the truth, peace and purity.

Green: This is the symbol of prosperity, and indicates the growth and auspiciousness of the mother land.

The Blue Chakra: This is called the wheel of the law and signifies righteousness.


Let’s start with the recipe list:


Tri-colour Sandwiches:

Starting with breakfast, you have got to make these tri-coloured sandwiches for your kids and tell them about the significance of each colour. Goodness of carrots for the orange layer, some creamy mayonnaise and paneer for the white layer and spicy green chutney for green layer. This recipe will take less than 30 minutes to prepare and is super delicious too.

Shaam Savera:

Our signature preparation, the colours of this dish – saffron, white and green - proclaim our nationalism. Spinach koftas are filled with paneer and served floating on a saffron coloured, velvety gravy. It also stands for shaam, or dusk, as represented by the darker shades of the spinach, while the paleness of the paneer symbolizes savera or dawn. When displayed as koftas cut open in half to show off the light inside, the dish is more than just food, it is poetry on a plate. Serve it with buttery naans, kulchas or paranthas and you're going to end up in the food heaven for sure!


Tiranga pulao:


Wondering about how to colour the pulao with the colours of our national flag? Don’t worry we have not used any artificial colouring in the recipe. Tomato puree is used for the saffron colour and spinach puree for the green colour. Ab toh pulao banana banta hi hai! Healthy and delicious too, make this pulao for your family and be the star chef for the day.


Tri-colour raita:


Do a little extra on this extraordinary day. Thick yogurt flavoured 3 ways- carrots, onion and spinach to give you this delicious tri-coloured raita. Easy and tempting, we bet they are irresistible. Make this colourful raita and serve it to everyone. You don’t want to miss out on the praises for sure. Three different amazing flavours- let them choose for themselves.

Orange Shahi Tukda Canapes:

This day cannot get any better than this. You might already be in love with the regular shahi tukda but it's time to try this one with orange flavour. End your meal with this decadent and royal dessert which presents the colours, saffron and white from our Indian flag. They look so delicious and tempting, we are sure it will leave everybody wanting for more.


Happy cooking! Happy Eating! Happy Independence Day!
