Diwali Recipes | Diwali Sweet Recipes | Popular Diwali Recipes 2018
The festival of lights, togetherness, celebrations and festivity is around the corner. This year Diwali is on 7th Nov, 2018. Any celebration is incomplete without sweets and delicious food. In India, sweets are shared with friends, neighbors and relatives during Diwali night.
This time let’s make sweets at home rather than buying them from outside. Let’s start the day with some sweets and snacks and then we will move on to main course recipes.
