Can you imagine Diwali without sweetssavouries, new clothes, diyas and fireworks?! More than the menu on Diwali day, there is more focus on Diwali sweets and Diwali 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.

Indian Barfi Recipes for Diwali

An all time favourite of all is Kaju Katli also called as Kaju Barfi. This exotic looking diamond shaped mithai, in reality, requires only 4 ingredients and less than 15 minutes of cooking time. All you have to be careful about the consistency of the sugar syrup and your bound to get a perfect Inidan mithai ready for Diwali.

Another quick barfi using mava is Malai Barfi. Creamy and soft to the core, you can quickly present it to your guests - family and friends with a real, relaxed smile on your face.

A slightly healthy version of a no sugar barfi is Anjeer and Mixed Nut Barfi. Perk up your festival spread with this unique mithai that brings together nuts like walnuts, pistachios and almonds with dried figs. The addition of kesar and elaichi powder makes it all the more authentic.

Indian Ladoo Recipes for Diwali

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. Moti in hindi means pearl and choor means crumbly and hence the name motichoor ladoo.

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’.
