Microwave Mysore Pak Recipe| Easy Diwali Sweets For Beginners

Ok. So you fall into any one of these clique of people- 1. You are a newbie bride who doesnt know to cook anything but for Maggi ( thank God for Maggi, or who would have known to cook?). 2. You have a little one who almost always decides that the right time to wail is when you want to catch some shut eye. 3. You have your hands full with cleaning the house or whatever that needs some cleaning. 4. You dont have the time for whatever reason ( ahem......) or 5. You are lazy but you dont want to look like a duffer when your neighbors dole out generous helpings of diwali goodies.

Pineapple Kesari Recipe| Easy Diwali Sweet Recipes

Kesari or sweet semolina pudding is probably the easiest dessert that one can make. Its a sweet recipe that s new bride friendly, a bachelor s boon and an average cook s pride. But this recipe can be equally finicky too when you dont have the patience or the time for it. I wont say that kesari is forgiving but yes, it comes with that advantage of not needing to check string consistency. The only tricky part in making kesari is to make sure that there are no lumps in it. And for this, i recommend using a balloon whisk while stirring.

Dry Fruit Ladoo Recipe| Easy Diwali Sweet Recipes For Beginners

This year s diwali will not be much of a fanfare in my kitchen. With a little one in tow and barely six hours of sleep, i find it extremely difficult to cook, let alone make something for Diwali. All these posts that you have been reading were prepped by me way back in the month of June because i knew this phase would come and i didn't want the blog to suffer. But i hadn't made anything in tune for Diwali because deep frying food or making sweets while i broiled in that hot kitchen was unimaginable in summer. So this year, i decided to keep it simple and yet rich in taste.
