Come celebrate August 15 with a wonderful spread of saffron-white-green dishes.

Swap your vegetarian or paneer biryani for Masala Bhaat featuring colours of the national flag. It is topped with beaten yoghurt, a rolled crispy papad and fresh sprigs of green dhania or coriander.

The mildly-spiced Saffron Mutton Curry will pair well with a Tricolour Pulau, flavoured with spinach and tomatoes.

Tirangi Kebabs and the Tricolour Paneer Tikka make a good side dish with Tiranga Rice and South Indian Ghee Chicken Curry.

Wanna add a Indian Chinese twist to your I-Day menu? The Prawn Dimsums will appeal to adults and kids alike.

A colourful and healthy Tirangi Salad shouldn't take much of your time and will look great on your table.

If you are a fan of seafood, the Tropical Prawn, Carrot and Beans Salad is a must.

Or get inspired to produce a batch of steamed Vegetable Dumplings in orange, green and white.
