The big festival of Diwali went as quickly as it came. The never-ending meetings and greetings with family and friends became the way of life the whole festive season. All those feeling low-spirited with all the Diwali revelry ending, know it's not over yet. In fact, it's time to gear up for the joyous festival of Bhai Dooj that is always celebrated two days after Diwali, and this year it falls on 29th October. Bhai Dooj celebrates the love-filled relationship between brothers and sisters. On this day, sisters apply tilak (vermillion) on their brothers' foreheads and pray for their well-being; and brothers vow to be always there to protect their sisters. Just like Diwali and all other festivals, the rituals end on a sweet note with the whole family gorging on sweet dishes.
Although, there is no dearth of sweets available in the local sweet shops around us, especially with Diwali just gone by, there are many people who want to make this festival more special by preparing sweets at home for their siblings or children. But then, there are also some people who want to offer homemade sweets to the family but don't have much time in hand or are too lazy to get out of their post-Diwali slumber. If you can relate to the latter segment, we can help you by dishing out some fantastic recipes of desserts that can be easily made at home and are not too time consuming.
