Quick Fix Recipes To Make You A Bhang Fiend This Holi

Make sure you eat plenty of food before and after consuming bhang and don't mix it with alcohol

Holi is not just a festival of colours, but it is also about binge-eating — whether on gujias or pakodas. And bhang is an indispensable part of the palette. Once you have it, you will either have endless stories to tell, not just about its taste but also about why you’re not able to understand anything anyone says to you anymore. But bhang is not just consumed with thandai, instead, you can have in your regular dishes as well! We have curated a list of dishes in which you can easily infuse some bhang.

PS: Eat plenty of food before and after consuming bhang and don’t mix it with alcohol
