Two Delicious Diwali Recipes

Diwali is known as the festivals of lights. The day is celebrated by lighting candles all around the house. Lakshmi Puja is performed in the evening to seek divine blessings of Goddess of Wealth. Diwali gifts such as sweets are exchanged among all near and dear ones.

Here are two traditional recipes to help make your next Diwali celebration more enthusiastic - and tasty!

Wheat Laddu

  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup Besan (gram flour)
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup grated coconut
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 cup ghee

Heat the ghee over a medium heat. Mix in the wheat flour and besan flour. Roast the coconut, then add this, plus the raisins, to the mixture. Now put the powdered sugar in the mixture and stir thoroughly. Take off the heat quickly, let cool just slightly, and then make the laddus.

Besan ki Barfi

  • 2 tbsps ghee
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup besan (gram flour)

Heat the ghee in a medium-sized saucepan, then add the gram flour. Cook ghee and gram flour together for a few minutes on medium-low heat, making sure the color of the gram flour does not change. Add sugar and continue to stir for another minute or two. Remove from heat. Add raisins and cardamom powder and mix thoroughly.

Remove from pan and spread onto rolling board. Allow to cool until firm. Cut into squares of desired size and serve.
