Festival recipes

Diwali sweets recipes - Indian festival sweets - Indian mithai. Without sweets it doesn't feel like it is diwali.

Indians love sweets. Festivals are just an excuse to eat sweets.

Most sweets are available in sweet shops but homemade diwali sweets are a must during deepavali . Many sweets, such as chirote, besan laddoo, shankarpale are made mainly during diwali without which the diwali celebration is not complete.

Along with sweets, we must have some namkins/savories too for diwali.
