Today I am having a Mehndi party. I have invited a few of my friends. We will have dinner and apply Mehndi.
Mehndi is the application of henna as a temporary form of skin decoration in Asia and Middle East.
Mehndi decorations became fashionable in the West in the late 1990s, where they are sometimes called henna tattoos. Henna is typically applied during special occasions like weddings and Muslim festivals such as Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha as well as in Hindu festivals like Karva Chauth, Diwali, Bhaidoj and Teej. Henna was originally used as a form of decoration mainly for brides and her friends.
In the modern age, usually people buy readymade Henna cones, which are ready to use and make painting easy. However, in rural areas in India, women grind fresh henna leaves on grinding stones with added oil, which though not as refined as professionally prepared henna cones, brings much darker colors.
For dinner I will serve:-
Chicken and Beetroot Lemon Grass and Chilli
