How to make rangoli coloured powder at home?
You can either buy readymade rangoli powder from the market or you can make it on your own. Traditionally women used household items from the kitchen to make rangoli/muggulu/kolam designs. Using household items, such as rice flour powder, haldi, Kumkum, gulal, spices, grains, for rangoli designing is considered auspicious.
You can use either the rice flour or salt to make the rangoli coloured powder. Take rice flour or salt in a container with lid. Add food colour and vinegar to it. Cover the container with lid and shake it well until the blend gets mixed up well. Finally spread the mixture on a clean cloth or a newspaper and let it dry.
