With the occasion of Republic Day drawing near, we’ve prepared for you a tricolour dish that you can make to celebrate the holiday! The word ‘Tricolour’ or ‘Tiranga’ itself brings a sense of patriotism in all Indians. Our flag has three equal segments of saffron, white and green colors along with a navy blue Ashoka Chakra in between and so as our dish has the three colours.


This dish is rich in protein and calcium which you get from paneer and curds; bell peppers are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A and C. Overall this dish is full of nutrients, and you can enjoy your holiday guilt free.
