Diwali festival is a special time in India. Its worth visiting the country just in order to see the vibrant clothes, colors, lights, firecrackers lighting up the sky and immense variety of sweets and snacks. The streets look adorned thanks to Rangoli drawn, each house trying to compete with the other with its creativity, size and usage of different colors. This is such a nostalgic time for me. I remember my growing up years, getting up way early in the morning (around 3:00 am), taking head bath, wearing new clothes and running to the terrace to burst crackers.


Breakfast followed with aromatic goodies, followed by feasting and crackers the whole day. Overload of sweets, snacks, and gifts followed thanks to all friends and family visiting each other. Here, in another part of the world, Diwali means just me and my family following the routine as much as possible to keep in touch with what’s comforting to us.


Food of course plays a major part trying to compensate for the lack of other rituals. Here are some yummy Diwali sweets and savories to make during the festival that’s coming on Nov 13th 2012. Nothing beats making the traditional recipes and here they are made easier with clear and precise instructions.
