Diwali is one of the most beautiful festivals of India and also a great time to eat good food! Time to indulge in these 15 mouthwatering desserts this season!
Diwali is one of my favorite Indian festivals. There are so many wonderful memories growing up that it is simply fascinating to reminisce them. The smell of new clothes and clean house would equally tantalize us as much as the aroma for festive food that is sweet and savory. From early morning head bath to drawing rangoli in the afternoon to bursting firecrackers in the evening , we would do it all.
