It is that time of the year when you can be guilty of loading up on lots of gujiyas and delicious savouries along with thandai; it's the time to celebrate Holi that is slated to be celebrated on 2nd March, 2018. Holi is synonymous to indulging in sweets, especially gujiya, which is a fried dessert, made of all-purpose flour and filled with khoya, sugar and dry fruits inside.
