Diwali also known as the "Festival of Lights" is round the corner and every home is buzzing with activities like spring cleaning, renovating, decorating, preparing sweets or shopping for new clothes and fire crackers and diyas. One can feel the excitement of the festive spirit in the air. All the shops are well lit and decorated offering large discounts to attract customers.
The excitement is contagious because, every year during Diwali once the cleaning and preparation of sweets are completed, I say to myself that from next year I am not going to prepare so many items as it is very exhausting. But as Diwali approaches I seem to get a burst of energy and the process of preparation starts. This time too, I prepared five different varieties – two savories and three sweets and hence I did not find to time to post new recipes in my blog. I shall make up for it after Diwali.
Here’s wishing all my readers and their families a very Happy and a prosperous Diwali.
Watch out for the recipes of these Diwali sweets in my next post.
