A collection of Diwali Recipes both Sweets and Savories, prepared for Deepavali in South and Diwali in North. Apart from Sweets and Savories, we also have a special meal that gets cooked for the lunch.
Deepavali always kindles memories of many evenings spent with Amma making these dishes. I have been recording all these that have been cooked in our home. Every year we plan for new dishes along with the regular dishes that get cooked for the festival.
We have a particular Deepavali Traditions that get followed on the day. This is the time when we have family gatherings and parties. You can check out my older posts where I have shared our Deepavali Celebrations in parts.
I am hoping that these diwali recipes will help you prepare for your family members.
Hope you will find the list useful. Click on the Recipe name to access the recipe.
