Come Diwali and with that thought, my mind is filled with plates full of Diwali sweets! We have decided it to be a green Diwali and are encouraging others to #SayNoToCrackers. Green Diwali is prompting us to be more creative with the time spent for Diwali. What better way to spend the time than preparing some homemade Diwali sweets, making it a fun activity for kids and the whole family?
With busy schedules everyday, most of us end up buying crackers and sweets simultaneously. This Diwali cheers me up more and makes me feel, there are more advantages for giving up crackers!

Here are some must try Diwali sweets!
This sweet samosa is similar to your gujiya or kajjikayalu but is a Bengali version called Singara (samosa). The main difference is that, this Singara is a sweet and is richer than the regular mawa gujiya. The filling is made with jaggery, coconut and with some crunchy nuts – you can try your own mix – making it a versatile one among Diwali sweets.

Again a jaggery based sweet, and yet tastes very different from the above recipe of sweet samosa. The combination with rice flour makes the adhirasam/ariselu a little crisper on the outside and softer on the inside, and is among the famous Diwali sweets in south India.

Dal payasam or kheer made with chana dal is creamy and also takes care of nutrition during festival time, especially for kids. Forget the regular kheer with vermicelli and include this protein rich and creamier kheer in your list of Diwali sweets this year.
