Diwali and desserts are synonymous with each other. From Soan papdi to Kaju Katli, and barfi we Indians never stop at one dessert. These days there are a variety of unique desserts available in the market. But nothing can match the taste of classic Indian desserts that were made at home by our mothers. Check out the recipes of the traditional Indian desserts and revive the old vibes.
We are in the modern era in which traditional food is slowly being replaced by Western food. These days you will hardly find people serving laddoos, kheer or any traditional desserts to their guests. It is considered old-fashioned and thus the market has taken that trend to make and sell unique desserts. No matter how modern we become, there is something we can’t compromise on and that is the taste of our laddoos and Kheer that our mothers used to make during festivals. This Diwali, let’s go back to our roots and try Indian classic desserts and surprise our guests with these wholesome desserts.
Besan Ke Laddoo
Remember the time when Besan ke Laddoo was more popular than Chocolates and our mothers used to prepare that at home? This Diwali ditch the chocolates and give your guest a box of homemade ladoos as a Diwali present. The aroma of roasted besan, filled with nuts and packed with desi ghee is no less than a wholesome dessert you can ever have.
Chawal Ki Kheer
Whether it’s a promotion, job offer or good results, our mothers used to make Kheer to celebrate the news. Kheer is not just an Indian dessert but an emotion that depicts happiness. Diwali is the perfect occasion to prepare Kheer. Kheer (rice kheer recipe) is a perfect combination of rice and milk, topped with almonds and nuts. You can garnish the Kheer bowl with saffron strings before serving it to your guests to make it a wholesome dessert for them.
Made with the goodness of ghee and besan, cooked in sugar, Mysore Pak makes a perfect Indian sweet for festivals. This is one of the easiest sweets you can make for your family and friends this Diwali.
Besan Ka Halwa
Halwa is a traditional Indian dessert which is often made to celebrate happy occasions. Besan ka Halwa is a popular Indian dessert made with roasted besan, mixed with the goodness of ghee and topped with almonds and nuts. It is a perfect Indian dessert that you can serve your guests on Diwali.
Fried Indian dessert Gujiya makes a perfect addition to the Diwali dessert list. The crispy pastry filled with sweet Khoya and dry fruits gives a wholesome experience. You can make it healthy by baking the Gujiya rather than frying it.
