This year India is celebrating its 69th Republic day. Republic day marks the birth of Indian Republic and adoption of Indian constitution. This day is celebrated by showcasing the might and valour of Indian armed forces, cultural heritage, advancements in technology and future of India. Tricolour plays a very important role in the celebrations. The celebrations also include distribution of sweets/choclates in schools, cultural activities and many more. Tricolour flag hoisting is an important event on republic/independence day. Celebrate this year’s Republic day with a versatile evening snack tricolour Gobi 65. Gobi 65 is prepared with cauliflower which is deep fried adding three colours. Addition of food colours is completely an individual choice.
