Diwali recipes




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.

Can you imagine Diwali without sweets, savouries, new clothes, diyas and fireworks?! More than the menu on Diwali day, there is more focus on sweets and snacks prepared that week, 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! It is perhaps the sweets and snacks that are most significant because they are shared with near and dear ones, symbolic of sharing your joy with them.

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.

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 on our website will surely make your Diwali special…
