The festivity of Navratri is still reeling in our minds and we are just getting over our hangover of late-night Garba’s that we are already gearing up for the upcoming festival. Yes, we are soon approaching the most awaited festival of the season, Diwali the festival of light.
The gold lit colourful lamps, the artistic lanterns, the beautiful rangolis, the range of flowerpots, sparklers and crackers and a display of sweets and savouries is a perfect picture we sketch in our minds when we talk about Diwali. It would be one of the festivals where you need not fast but simply feast.
The Diwali celebrations occur over a period of five days and include numerous traditions, activities, and, yes, tasty treats. When we talk about tasty treats it is true that food plays a very important role in all celebrations. Sweets and fried snacks are an integral part of any Indian festival. In fact, preparing these dishes turn out to be the highlight of every festival.
Some of the traditional snacks still made at homes are:
