Diwali Wishes with Deepavali special sweets and savories 2011!
Wishing all my readers a very happy and prosperous Deepavali / Diwali. May this year brings you lots and lots of happiness in life and fulfill all your dreams!
What a wonderful day it's been! It has been raining non stop yesterday. Guess the rain God decided that the kids should have their fun at playing with the crackers, that it didn't rain much today.
Though the Deepavali treats started early at home because of the Marathon last week, we still decided to make the usual sweets and savories this year. Amma was upset that she couldn't fit in the Mixture
and Ribbon Pakoda
. She made her usual Rava Laddo
and Mysore Pak
. I learnt a new trick this year, which was that one can make the hard version of mysore pak with the sugar that gets leftover after making Kaja.
From my side, I ended up making Bombay Kaja, Thenkuzhal Muruku, Mini Kajas. Of course everything was done with Amma. I was only the helper there..:)
Deepavali is always very nostalgic for me. I miss those days, well I have written about it enough in my previous posts. Only thought I had in mind was to make sure my kids also make beautiful memories to cherish their childhood. They wanted to play with the firecrackers last night itself. So they did some, rest are saved for tonight.
Will be posting the recipes shortly, I am sure you will enjoy!
