Halloween Food: Spooky, Innovative, Delicious
Halloween in IndiaLike many Western adaptations, or should I say American adaptations, Halloween is a tradition that is slowly but surely catching up in India as well, at least in Delhi. Here is an article by Yamini Pustake Bhalerao that talks about Halloween becoming popular in India as well. In India, social gatherings mean snacks, food and drinks. Will Halloween food be any different? Of course, you bet. Ideas for Halloween food have been many. Anand’s wife had a few ideas – to stick blueberry pieces on top of a rasagolla, to give it a scary popping eyeball look. Scary and interesting no?
