Happy Holi

The festival of colors. Though almost the entire North Indian will be celebrating Holi on Monday, we here in the Eastern part of the country celebrated it this morning.

This festival of colors considered as the National Festival of the country is the largest festival in the sub-continent. The colors, the customs, the rituals is the essence of this spring festival.

We at Cook Like a Bong wish you all a very Happy Holi.

Bengali Style Matar Paneer

“…..I think for two people to really love each other to really commit to each other it has to be an act of will.
Or a decision. And I think two people have to live that decision every day. Even when things are hard and you feel like giving up you have to hang on to that decision, that choice to love each other. Even if it’s only by a thread. I let that thread break once. This time, it won’t. Will you marry me?” – Luke Harrison from Stepmom movie.

I couldn’t resist but quote these words on this very special day. Click to know more and to get a lovely recipe to share with your special one.
