Diwali Sweets and Savories

This year Diwali falls on October 26. And we are looking forward to celebrate this Diwali with some wonderful sweets and savory dishes. In India, most of the sweet shops will be crowded at this time to buy different kinds of sweets and other delicacies. But it is always special when we prepare them at home with love and distribute it to our family and friends. Besides, there are other special dishes that we prepare on this auspicious day. And I am happy to share all these recipes with you and wishing you a safe and wonderful Diwali.
