 Jar Snacks for Diwali





5/5 stars      1 REVIEW
Diwali is that time of the year when the whole country is dazzling with lamps, new clothes and festive events! Unlike many festivals of regional importance, this is one occasion when the whole country unites in celebration. Of course, India is an example of unity in diversity, so in this case too, there are innumerable ways in which the festival is celebrated. Some worship Goddess Lakshmi while others focus on Krishna. Some light lamps while others burst crackers. However, everybody loves to have good food during Diwali.

More than the menu on Diwali day, there is more focus on sweets and snacks prepared that week like Amrit Peda, Poha Chivda, Rice Flour Chakli, because friends and relatives love to exchange these along with small gifts as a token of their love. So, this is a brilliant occasion to show off your cooking skills too!

When deciding what Snacks and sweets to prepare, take into consideration the time you have, level of experience, how many varieties and how much of sweets and savouries you would like to share with your friends and family, and what you would like to serve at home. Balance your choice in terms of taste and appearance. For example, if you have chosen one sugary sweet, then you could make the other a dry fruit or jaggery based one. Likewise, it won’t look nice if you pack your box with 2-3 types of sev. If you have prepared one type of sev, then let the other be different in appearance – maybe Chakli or bakarwadi.

Since you cannot prepare everything on the same day, plan such that you prepare those with a longer shelf life earlier and those than need to be consumed fresh just before Diwali. Depending on the sweets and snacks that you plan to exchange with others, plan the packaging also. If you need to order decorative boxes or bags, do so in advance.

Once you plan things well, you will find that the task of preparing the snacks is much more enjoyable and leisurely. Moreover, most of our recipes are made using readily available ingredients and quick methods, so you will find them convenient. These recipes and others on our website will surely make your Diwali special…

A melt-in-the-mouth biscuit, with the rich aroma of ghee tinged with spicy notes of cardamom, the Nankhatai is a perfect example of Indian ingenuity. Almond and pistachio powders not only improves the flavour but also makes the Nankhatai more porous, making every bite just melt in your mouth a ....

Like green chutney and khajur imli ki chutney, Sev is also an extremely important ingredient in the preparation of chaat items like Bhel, Sev Puri, etc. In fact, if you just top boiled sprouts or grated veggies with Sev, it gives the impression of a chaat item; that is how closely it is related to t ....
