50+ Diwali Recipes

Diwali is the festival of lights and the biggest festival celebrated across India. For me, Diwali always meant tons of food! I have fond memories of gorging on all Diwali sweets and delicacies at least a week or two in advance.

Here’s a collection of some of my favorite Diwali recipes that you can make this festive season. While there are some traditional ones like this Besan Ladoo and Kajul Katli, there are also some fun fusion ones like this Motichoor Ladoo Cheesecake Jars! Also not to forget the savory recipe, the Baked Methi Mathri is my absolute favorite and so are these Paneer Nachos which will surely be a star of any Diwali party!

Wishing everyone a very Happy Diwali. May the festival of light fill you life with love & happiness!
