My sambandhi make this recipe very well. This is also one of the spicy, crispy, easy to make recipe. Ribbon Pakoda/Nada is a very simple, easy to do snacks on any occasion. This is given as seer bakshnam for many auspicious occasions like marriages, seemandham etc. Homemade rice flour is best for this ribbon pakoda as it will give a nice texture and crispy taste. But we can very well use store bought rice flour too. Here, I have given recipe with homemade rice flour.

Badhusha (Badusha / Balushahi) is an easy to do sweet and it will be very delicious. We can make this with easily available ingredients. Even if people don't like sweets, can try this as it is a very mild sweet. Maida based doughnuts are deep fried and then soaked in sugar syrup to coat it well. A very simple to make sweet yet so delicious. Many of us have a tradition to make this delectable sweet for Diwali and many other occasions. Try this version of soft and yummy Badhusha and share your experience!

Badam burfi is an easy and delectable burfi like coconut burfi. Traditionally many of us make coconut burfi for diwali and many occasions. Almond is a healthy nut. Almonds are soaked, skinned and grind to paste and cooked with sugar syrup to get this delicious burfi. Most of us make almond burfi only with almonds. But my friend adds equal quantity of almonds and cashews to make this burfi. So, this time, I made this burfi with almonds and cashews and it turned our very yummy. A perfect dessert or sweet for Diwali and other occasions. For any festivals, we love to make sweets and share with friends and relatives. This is one such sweet which can be made quick and also very delicious and easy to share with our friends and family. 

Most of the Women nowadays are professionals working for long hours. Making home made sweets and snacks for Diwali is challenge for them. Because most of the dishes especially sweets need more time for preparation and also great expertise.  Most of us have a perception that sweets need more expertise. Yes, it is true for some dishes but there are few sweet dishes that may not go wrong even for the beginners and also those dishes take only less time to concoct. So, I have planned to give here some of the easy and yummy sweets that can be done within 20 minutes.

Sweets are one of the most important aspect for Diwali Festival. Preparing Sweets need not be always cumbersome and difficult.  Many of them are not aware that how easy it is to make Diwali sweet at home. I have seen many of my friends who plan to get badhusha, jangri, mysorepak from shops when they can easily make these in home itself. Kaju Katli is the most expensive sweet in any sweet shop. Kaju Katli is one of the easy recipe which we can make at home within 20 minutes. Why to go to sweet shops if we can do most of these easily and instantly at home?

Diwali, a very important festival for all of us. When we think of Diwali, the first thing comes to our mind is New dress, crackers and most important is the Sweets and Snacks. We start our planning well before, may be a atleast a week before to decide what sweets and snacks we are going to prepare for this Diwali. But nowadays I am seeing many of us are busy in our work and not finding enough time to make homemade sweets and snacks and just buying the store bought sweets and snacks. I have come up this article to motivate all women to make home made sweets and snacks which are much healthier and affordable. 

Like Sweets, Snacks are the integral part of Diwali. There are many different varieties of snacks we can make, but some are time consuming and some needs more expertise. Many of you will be searching the web for some easy snacks which will never go wrong and also the snacks which need less time and effort. Here are few recipes which doesn't need much of your time or effort but very traditional and crunchy snacks. Try these easy snacks for this Diwali and relish with your family.

Phool Makhana Curry(Lotus Seeds Masala Curry) is new to me! I tasted this yummy dish in one of my friend's house. She is a North Indian and she made this on a fasting day without onions and garlic. Lotus Seeds (Phool Makhana) is nutrition rich. It is rich in calcium and protein. She used to make roasted lotus seeds just for snacks time. She even makes Phool Makhana kheer. I liked the taste so much and made this gravy over the weekend. I have used onion and garlic, but if you plan to do this during fasting days, just avoid them. Still you will get a thick and tasty curry that would goes well with any Indian Breads!

Saraswathi pooja is considered to be a very auspicious day which is celebrated on the 9th day of the Navrathri. On this auspicious day, students keep their books in the Pooja and Pray to the Goddess Saraswati who is known to bestow knowledge and wisdom to all of her worshippers. Not only do the students offer their books at the deity's feet but they also neatly cover them and make them look as good as new.On each book, we keep Sandhanam and kumkum and keep under Goddess's feet to get her blessings. Since we are keeping the books in pooja in this auspicious occasion, we have a belief that we should not read anything; the next day which is Vijaya Dashami is when we should do pooja and take the books and read thereby getting the blessings of the Goddess of learning.

Navratri also called as Dasara, meaning ‘ten days’, becomes dasara in popular parlance. The Navaratri festival or ‘nine day festival’ becomes ‘ten day festival’ with the addition of the last day, Vijayadashami which is its culmination. On all these ten days, the various forms of Mother Mahisasura-mardini (Durga) are worshipped with fervour and devotion

Sabudana Thalipeeth is one of the popular vrat / fasting dish made especially during Navratri / Dusshera festival. Sabudana is the ingredient we use especially on vrat / fasting days like Ekadasi. North Indians especially Maharashtrians make many dishes using sabudana (Sago / Jevvarasi). This is one of the delicious dish and it is also quite filling as we are adding potatoes and crushed peanuts along with sago. The dough preparation is same as Sabudana Vada. Its more healthy than sabudana vada as we are going to cook these thalipeeth on tawa and shallow fry them. Serve this Sabudana Thalipeeth with plain or sweetened yogurt or raita or chutney of your choice. 

Wheat Halwa is a wonderful sweet and it is famous in southern region of Tamilnadu. Authentic and traditional Tirunelveli Halwa is very popular in Tamilnadu. Traditionally they use palm jaggery and sugar. If you use the Palm jaggery you will get dark brown color. Some of use also use food color. My friend is an expert in making this halwa. This is her signature dish. Instead of learning this dish from her, this time I decided to go to her home and shoot it. She made this melting halwa for my blog while I shot this video. I would like to dedicate this recipe for her. My hearty Thanks to her for spending her time to make this halwa and share the recipe for my blog. Its little complex and time consuming, but worth making. I tasted a teaspoon of halwa amd it melts in my mouth.  Try this version of Wheat halwa and let me know your comments!

Pottukadalai(Roasted Gram) urundai is a quick and easy sweet snack especially for the kids. We need to spend only 20 to 30 mins to do this yummy dish. My mom used to make this during Navratri and we used to share with our neighbours who come and visit our Golu. Those days are wonderful, my mom used to dress up the kids and take them along with her to see our neighbour's Golu. They in-turn visit our house and we distribute the neivedhyam.  Among the sundal varieties, Pottukadalai urundai is different and much delighted to eat this. My all time favourite.

Sambar Vadai, a scrumptious snack, its extremely appetizing, tastes so good... we cannot stop with taking one. Sambar Vadai is not so difficult recipe to make, but there are small tips and tricks that i am going to explain here will make your Sambar vadai very special. 

The Sambar is a key part of this recipe and I have given here a perfect recipe for the Sambar which I believe being followed in the Chennai hotels.
