Gorging on desserts is an integral part of Diwali celebrations. But, apart from just cooking up a storm and filling our kitchens with appetising sweet treats, there's a lot more that Diwali brings. We get busy cleaning their houses, deciding on Laxmi puja, and buying new clothes among other things. So, it gets challenging to spend hours in the kitchen cooking sweet dishes. Also, in general, most of us don't get enough holidays on this occasion which automatically, makes it impossible to get involved in cooking. But then we don't really want to order sweets from outside either because something you make is surely special and gives the festivity a personal touch. So, what could be the solution? Maybe, look for recipes that are easy and can be prepared quickly. Here's a list of seven finger-licking desserts that can be made at the last moment.
Let's hit the list with this traditional recipe. Ladoos are a must on Diwali, however, we suggest sticking to this recipe if you want to go for something quick and delicious. Coconut til ladoo hardly takes about twenty-five minutes to get ready. Also, the best thing is that you just need three ingredients to make these – sesame seeds, dates and grated coconut.
Sweet and delectable barfis make for an important part of the festive celebrations. And there's a wide variety of barfi recipes available out there. However, these nuts barfis are tasty, easy to make and healthy. The usage of dry fruits and nuts like almonds, pistachios, and cashew nuts makes the delight more interesting.
Here's an exotic take on your regular ladoos. Absolutely delightful to savour, these yummy ladoos carry the goodness of butterscotch, pista and almonds. This is a great option for the festive time when you don't want to stick to the traditional recipes and try out something new. Yes, it must be a rare recipe but we bet, you'll like the taste.
Are you open to trying out certain fusion recipes? If yes, then we have an interesting idea. This recipe will allow you to give a little makeover to your usual gujiyas. If you are sort of bored with the traditional recipe, try this out. In this, the fried dumplings (gujiyas) are topped with chocolate syrup. So, chocolate lovers, take notes!
Ever heard of Mohanthal? It is a traditional sweet dish made with besan flour popular for its richness and drool-worthy taste. A lot of ghee, milk, gran flour and khoya go into the preparation of this square-shaped barfi-like dish. Also, you just can't miss out on the crunchiness of dry fruits and nuts that ultimately enhance the taste of the overall dish.
Choose this sweet dish over anything if you want to give your sweet binge a healthy spin. A lovely pudding made with Phool Makhana (popped lotus seed), milk and dry fruits is a sheer delight. You can also indulge in this super tasty kheer even while fasting.
As the name suggests, this famous dessert has its origin in the city of Mysore. The speciality of Mysore pak is that it carries a generous amount of ghee, sugar, gram flour and sometimes, even cardamom for a good taste. Why go to the market to buy Mysore pak when you can prepare it at home? Take the idea from this recipe and make some appetising Mysore pak at home on Diwali.
Now, you really don't have to worry even if you haven't started preparing sweets delights for Diwali yet!
