Love Diwali sweets but scared of buying adulterated or chemically-laced ones being sold in the market nowadays? Just put on your apron and roll out these easy-to-make, simple yet divine Diwali sweets...


Diwali is round the corner. And along with lamps and firecrackers, one more reason we look forward to Diwali is the delectable sweets we get to eat during the celebrations. However, of late, one is scared of buying sweets from shops fearing adulteration. So, the best thing is to make traditional sweets and snacks at home, and surprise everyone, including your guests, with your cooking skills. Here are five simple, easy-to-do, quick recipes of Diwali sweets curated from the Internet just for you:

  1. Rasgulla


This melt-in-the-mouth soft and spongy cheese ball in light and sweet sugary syrup is a gift of Bengal and the favourite of many. Make sure you make this in bulk as these would get finished in no time.

And here is a quick recipe, with which you can make rasgullas in just 10 minutes. For full recipe, click here.


  1. Kaju Katli
