Moving on to the Mains, how can you have a Diwali party and not include the creamy dal makhani in your spread? This black urad dal delicacy is a mass favourite; pair it with hot naans and you would know what we mean. Malai kofta is another stellar preparation that is commonly prepared during Indian festivals. This rich, creamy and mild paneer dish goes best with piping hot rice or pulao. If you are expecting some tiny tots in your party too, you can bake this quick mini mushroom pizza. Cheesy and delectable, this pizza is a hit among both kids and adults, alike.
And we are already at the desserts; we told you we'll make your party planning a fuss-free affair. To conclude the festive feast, you could include a mix of traditional and modern treats.

If you are fond of chocolate, then you must consider these fudgy chocolate brownies too. Dense and decadent, these brownies are sure to make you crave for more.
