Announcing Diwali Special – Sweets & Savories

Diwali ~ Every one anxiously wait for this festival every year to celebrate it with much grandeur. Everyone have a wish list to own something new on this auspicious day. Festival of Lights dawns upon us to make the darkness go away not only in us but around us and make us into a new person. With the advent of revolution in communication this festival has only gone global in recent times that not only Hindus, but people of different communities around the World look forward to celebrating this global festival.

So why am I with this announcement now, as there are still 2 more months to go? Because I would like this announcement to be a one stop shop for all kinds of traditional sweet-kaaram or mithai-namkeen for this festival season. Beginners and foodies who wish to try out something new this year will have ample time to try out and perfect it before the D-Day.
