If you are looking for easy to make Sweets and Snacks for this Diwali, then you are at the right place.
We did a Mega BM with the theme Sweets & Snacks and this is a Recap of September Mega BM#104 we did. This is a collection of Sweets and Snacks from different Indian States.
I wasn’t planning on doing the Sep Mega BM in this space because of the mandatory 4th week. Somehow I ended up taking up the challenge and enjoyed cooking up 52 dishes. I have been doing April and September Mega BM on this space since the 2018. However, as I always enjoy challenge, I have managed to accomplish it, even it meant stretching beyond.
When I thought about the previous AtoZ Biryani Festival, I didn’t think I could do marathon cooking over weekend. However, I did manage that somehow. Again I was faced with the same situation and it was possible again.
So while I am not gloating, I feel if one needs to do something and is passionate about it, we can do it. Here’s the recap of the sweets and snacks I have shared in this space.
