Diwali is round the corner and I wanted to start making some snacks and sweets. I had a big list to make. Thought of making the savories on one day and sweets on another. I am not sure how many I am going to post here. But wanted to start posting with this one. Diwali or deepavali is known as festival of lights and is usually around autumn every year. The festival preparations usually extend over more than 5 days. And the main diwali night coincides with the darkest new moon light, karthiga. It is believed that on this day Rama returned to his people after 14 years of exile during which he fought and won a battle against the demons and the demon king, Ravana. People celebrate this day by lighting candles for his victory over evil (darkness). Some link it with the celebration of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity. The five day festival begins on the day lakhmi was born during the war between the forces of good and forces of evil. That’s a lot of information lets go to the fun part! Recipe time
