DIWALI CELEBRATION REASON
Diwali is a colourful festival, filled with food, family, gifts and lots of love and light; much like an Indian Christmas. A time when homes are thoroughly cleaned, family/friends visit each other and lots of food is made! There are many stories about what Diwali is and why it’s celebrated, I wrote THIS POST containing why it’s celebrated by different religions and Diwali facts.
If you’re looking to create your own mithai, this cookie dough chocolate barfi I illustrated by Sanjana at KO Rasoi last year is simple, easy and tastes so yum! It would make the perfect little treats to give to family and friends when they visit over the Diwali festival.
