Diwali Recipes, Diwali Food, Diwali Sweets

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 Diwali sweets and snacks (Diwali faral recipes) 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.

Karanji that are known as ghughra in Gujarati, Gujia in Hindi can be made with various stuffing and can either be fried or baked. It is one of the popular Deepavali sweets that has a delightful crunchy yet flaky mouthfeel. Other famous Diwali sweets recipes are Nuts Khoya Ladoo, Coconut Laddoo, Kaju Katli. If you are looking for Indian sweets recipes for Diwali recipes then our Traditional Indian Mithai section is surely going to amaze you with delights from across the country like the Mawa Kesar Roll, Motichoor Ke Ladoo, Rasgulla.

From sweet shakarpara and nankhatai to namkeen chaklis, air-tight containers filled with Diwali snacks like chivda, mathri, masala puri, nimki, sev is a traditional Diwali fare seen across all Indian households. My mother makes all these savoury delights which we relish without worrying about putting on extra kilos!

When deciding what Diwali 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.
