For many of us Diwali just seems incomplete without Motichoor ke Ladoo! Indian mithai reinforces the mood of festivity. Just follow the exact proportions and you will get the perfect motichur Ladoo, with the rich taste of besan and irresistible aroma of cardamom and saffron. motichoor ladoo are very soft and crumbly in texture.

Other Traditional Indian Mithai for Diwali

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 in making eggless Indian cookies. This has a very deep relation with Diwali. Women often make the dough at home and go to the bakery and shape them and give it for baking in their traditional ovens or what they call it as ‘bhatti’.
