Holi – a time for colors, laughter… and food!

Holi…the festival full of colours… full of enthusiasm… and a great time for foodies. Though it is a festival of colours, music,  and drinks, great food just can’t be overlooked.

Our chefs at Mealtango are all set for this festival,delivering from 13th to 18th of March.
