Deepavali which translates to ‘a row of lights’ is one of the most important of all Hindu festivals and is celebrated over a 5 day period and as Diwali is right on our doorstep we decided to move on to desserts regulars this year and treat yourself and your guests to lip-smacking delicacies. This year, Diwali falls on November 4, which gives us plenty of time to whip up a bunch of goodies.

The holiday symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. On this day, diyas, candles and lamps are placed all around the house, to “light up” the path of knowledge and victory and food plays an important role in the celebration of Diwali, in addition to all the entertainment, games of chance and firecrackers surrounding the Festival.
