Top 11 Sweets and Snacks for Diwali!!

Diwali — the festival of lights is just around the corner. It is celebrated with great joy and cheer around the nation and other countries where Indians reside. There is a feeling of happiness, peace, and unity amongst people during this wonderful festival. Diwali spiritually signifies the victory of good over evil. People clean and decorate their houses, offices, and temples with lots of colorful and electric lights, candles and diya’s (clay lamps). Rangoli is made outside the house to bring in some good luck. Special prayers are offered to Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha for good health and prosperity. Gifts are exchanged between friends and families to show love and affection. And bursting of firecrackers are some of the main rituals during Diwali. Different varieties of sweets and snacks are made before Diwali for family and friends. Today I am sharing few of the sweets and snacks recipes those are made during our biggest festival. Diwali is a five-day festival, and often friends and relatives visit after few days of the festival. These food items can be prepared ahead of time and can stay fresh up to a week. I have collected few recipes from other cooking experts and included here with some of mine. Hope you enjoy cooking these recipes and please your loved ones.
