A dish of different colored chutney -

Tricolored small Finger waffers(fried). I remember I love it as a child, and still I could find some of it in my home to make something perfect for this theme : )

Here I made Orange juice for the color of Orange .
White is my all time favorite - Buttermilk. (In Gujarati home there will not be a single meal served without buttermilk, and I just love it. : ) ) .
Green is the fresh Jaljeera (drink which helps in digestion/ can be served as appetizer) I made using Mint leaves. if someone intrested to knowthe recipe let me know, I will post it. :D.

Pasta made with baked Green peas and tomato puree - I think it also has good combination of all 3 colors, well correct me if I am wrong. :D

A side dish made up of raw papaya , green chillies and carrot ! This goes well when accompanied with any vegetarian main course and rice.

Even something more from me-Tricolored Curry!
