Three colours to define our nation, and 10 dishes to define your Independence Day celebrations 2021. It's a date!

 

Now, I get how all these efforts might seem futile at the moment but in my opinion, a foodie should never stop experimenting especially around festivities. And since it's the day to celebrate our country, paying a tribute that is genuine and gastronomic in nature, is a deed worth putting our aprons on for. 

 

But the real question is, how to make tri-colour dishes at home? Well, my research tells me it's simpler than it seems. Don't believe me? Here's a list of 12 delicious tri-colour recipes which will prove it.

 

1. Tri-Coloured Finger Toasties

This super-easy recipe by Chef Sanjyot Keer takes only 15 mins. To give it a tri-colour twist, he prepped three different mixtures to resemble the Indian flag. The saffron one is nothing but Paneer Shezwan, white is Cheese Chilli and finally green is made from Chatpata Pudhina Aloo mix. The colours are all-natural made from staple ingredients and the result is impressive and tasty. Serve it hot with ketchup or green chutney and enjoy!

2. Tri-Coloured Dumplings

Everybody loves dumplings. And even though the idea of making them at home might seem hard but in reality, it's quite simple. Here's an easy-to-make and even easier-to-follow recipe of dumplings with 3 different wrappers to give it a spin of our beloved flag. The saffron one is made alive with Gochujang, an ingredient you can find in grocery stores. The green one is the spinach and the white part is our good ol' plain dumpling. For the filling, you can follow your heart. It can be veg, chicken, mutton or all three. Savour it with chilli sauce which you can also make at home and Bon appetite!

3. Tri-Coloured Coconut Pudding

If you're in the mood for something sweet, jiggly and quick, this tri-coloured coconut smoothie is the right pick. With only three ingredients you can master this recipe in no time. FYI, the saffron colour is carrot juice, the green one is spinach juice and finally, the white is coconut milk. I think it's pretty clear that no artificial colours are used. Which is why I dig this recipe. The outcome is beautiful, tasty, healthy, super soft and melts right in your mouth.

4. Tri-Coloured Idlis

I found a recipe that incorporates all three colours in one single idli and it's awesome! For saffron colour, they picked the puree of chopped carrots and for the green, spinach puree. The dish is very healthy, amazing to look at and even tastier to eat. Serve it with Sambar or coconut chutney and watch your family go gaga.

5. Tri-Coloured Pulao

I can't stress this enough. Pulao isn't half bad for health. But when you add blanched spinach puree for green, tomato puree of orange and diced cottage cheese for the white section — it not only tastes better but makes the experience healthier. You can thank Shilpa Shetty for this wonder.

6. Tri-Coloured Chicken Kebabs

If somebody told me that there will be three different chicken kebabs for three different colours, I'd be the first one to arrive. FYI, the hariyali kebab is for the green, tandoori kebab is for saffron and malai kebab is for the white. Bon apetite!

Fruity freshness and goodness of veggies, what more can you ask from a smoothie?
