Tesu ke phool
Tesu, also known as Palash and Flame of the Forest (Butea monosperma), is an India’s native tree that makes a wonderful yellowish-orange dye. It flowers in march and petals look like lively flames. Legend says that Lord Sri Krishna used to play Holi with Tesu flowers. The flowers are soaked overnight in water and boiled to obtain a fragrant yellowish-orange coloured water.
