76th Independence Day: 3 easy tricolour dishes without fire for children

India is set to celebrate 75 glorious years of independence on August 15. As the whole country is gearing up for the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, it’s time to add some flavour to your 76th Independence Day celebrations. And what’s better than tricolour dishes?

This Independence Day, ditch the regular Samosa, Ghevar, and bread pakodas and indulge in these recipes that are inspired by the Indian Flag. Instead of just spending the day watching parades, flag-hoisting ceremonies, and cultural events and gobbling down the usual home-cooked meals, it’s time to try something new, unique, and, of course, delicious this year.

We have come up with tricolour dishes and that too without fire so that you can involve your children in this activity and also inculcate a sense of patriotism in them.

Method

  • Start with whisking the curd. Add sugar and cardamom powder to the curd.
  • To create the saffron colour of the flag, mix curd and Kesar syrup and to get the green colour, mix the curd and Khus syrup separately.
  • For the white colour keep the curd as is; don’t mix anything with it.
  • To make your favourite beverage tricolored, pour the Khus lassi into the glass first, then the plain white lassi, and then the Kesar lassi towards the end.

  • After an hour remove the Tri-Colour Cookies dough. On a flat surface, sprinkle some flour (or place butter paper) and roll out all the dough one by one.
  • Carefully keep the rolled green dough on a chopping board. Place the white part over the green one and then the orange one on the top of the white. Press them lightly.
  • Using a knife cut the dough into rectangular pieces.
  • Take one rectangular piece at a time, and press them a little. Place the chopped nut in the middle (like Ashoka Chakra).
  • Place some Tri Colour cookies on a greased baking tray and bake them in preheated oven at 180 degrees for 12 – 15 minutes. Baking time varies from oven to oven. Keep a check on the color to know when it is done.
  • Once it is done, remove it from the oven and let it set for 3-4 minutes. After that place them on a wire rack and let them cool completely.
  • Repeat the process until all the Tri-Colour cookies are baked.
  • Store them in an air-tight container and enjoy them whenever you want.
