Diwali Sweet Recipes, Diwali Mithai  Recipes

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.

When the festival season arrives, it is time to brush up our laddoo making skills and to expand our choice of laddoos because from Ganpati to Diwali, laddoo is a favourite offering to God. With striking flavour and colour, finely chopped mixed nuts and grated coconut get along very well in this exciting Coconut Ladoo.

Peda Recipes for Diwali

The tempting yellow coloured Kesar Pedas are stacked up in almost every shop during Diwali and most other fetivals and occasions. Instant Kesar Peda has a characteristic opulence about it, with the dominant flavours of saffron and cardamom lacing the intense richness of mava.

Malai Peda is another sweet which is accompanined on the shelves with Kesar Peda. This peda has a grainy texture as compared to the smooth finish of kesar peda.

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’.

Mohanthal is a traditional Gujarati mithai with the rich flavour and melt-in-the-mouth texture of ghee-roasted besan and sugar. Popular in Rajasthan and Gujarat, this mohanthal sweet is a part and parcel of the festive season. We have used regular besan for this traditional gujarati mohanthal recipe, which is easy to procure.
