Make this Diwali a delightful treat for your guests and yourself with these sweets, which can easily replace Soanpapdi. Check Out
Diwali is around the corner, and one thing we started thinking about was which sweets we should buy for this year because, with the festival of light, Diwali is also known for the variety of sweets we eat during this festive season. Diwali Sweets is one of the sweetest confusions in Diwali.
While some choose based on the availability of time, some choose safe, easy, and instant varieties; some choose to challenge the tough traditional ones; some choose family favourites; and some end up with Soanpapdi. But why Soanpapdi every year? Let’s find out some sweets with which you can give a delightful treat to your guests and your family.
Barfis are favourites among the vast repertoire of Indian sweets. Cut into various neat shapes, available in different colours, shapes, and textures—Barfis make the sweet indulgence a memorable affair. When the conversation about barfis arises, Kaju Katli, or Kaju Barfi, is the first name that comes to mind.
But why should we get stuck only between Kaju Katli and Kaju Barfi when we explore other options in the family of Barfi?
Uniquely celebrate this Diwali with delightful barfis, such as ‘Almonds Ki Barfi’, ‘Besan Ki Barfi’, ‘Chocolate Ki Barfi’, ‘Moong Dal Ki Barfi’, ‘Gulkand Ki Barfi’, and many others from which you can get a unique taste like your unique family.
In this list of sweets, how can we keep Gujiya (Indian dumpling), which gives you both the taste of sweets and a little saltiness at the same time?
It gives you a sweet taste from the inside and a little salty taste from the outside, with some essence of crispiness. This half-moon shaped like a dumpling is the option for those who come from Bihar, Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh.
You have to make and serve your loved ones these crispy deep-fried sweet treats, which are a crisp combination of the crispy outer layer and a delectable filling of mawa and dry fruits. Moreover, you can also give a twist to the traditional gujiya with chocolate, suji, khoa, or cinnamon fillings. Surely, your guests will drool over this variety of gujiyas.
Kalakand, or milk cake, is delicious, smooth, soft, and rich in taste. It is the best attention-grabber of any festivity, and your Diwali celebration is incomplete if these delightful sweets are absent from the menu of sweets.
