Diwali comes with a ritual where people exchange sweets as gifts along with lots of well wishes. This year, to ease your confusion with sweets to be presented as Diwali gifts, we have collated a list.
For Diwali gifts, you can customise the traditional sweets with a twist that will be adored by your loved ones. Here are some of the recipes. Take a look:
Aren’t you salivating by just reading the name of it? And yes, it tastes as delicious as you can imagine. Rabri is a rich and creamy condensed milk preparation, while Malpua is a sweet, deep-fried pancake. The fusion of these two elements results in a dessert that is nothing short of indulgent. The combination of the crispy, syrup-soaked Malpua, and the luscious Rabri creates a harmonious balance of textures and flavors, making Rabri Malpua a beloved dessert to be enjoyed this Diwali.
Why gift the traditional burfi when you can present your loved ones with chocolate burfi? This sweet dish blends the rich, velvety goodness of chocolate with the traditional charm of a burfi. The fusion of chocolate and burfi infuses the perfect balance of sweetness and the irresistible taste of chocolate with silvers of almonds or pistachios, adding a delightful crunch and nutty undertone.
This sweet combines the nutty goodness of peanuts and the earthy flavor of sesame seeds in a compact, round-shaped confection. To make this laddoo, jaggery is essentially used. The melted jaggery is mixed with the powdered mixture of peanuts and sesame. The result is a sticky, aromatic, and deeply flavorful mixture that is then shaped into small, bite-sized laddoos. These are not only delicious but also nutritious.
Gulab Jamun and cheesecake lovers can enjoy these both in this one dish. This dish can be regarded as the most successful experiment in the world of fusion foods. This preparation is made by combining layered biscuits, topped with a layer of half-cut Gulab Jamun, which is further topped with a layer of cream cheese. We are sure your loved one will adore this sweet gift.
This delight is popular in North India and is known for its rich and melt-in-the-mouth texture. Makhan or butter is the star ingredient here. It is made with unsalted butter along with milk, and sugar, and is flavoured with aromatic cardamom and sometimes garnished with slivers of almonds or pistachios for a delightful crunch. Makhan Peda has a distinct, slightly nutty, and buttery flavor that is both indulgent and satisfying.
Unlike the regular jalebi which is made from a fermented batter of flour and sugar, Paneer Jalebi features fresh paneer as its primary ingredient. Paneer Jalebi is a delightful combination of crispy exteriors and syrup-soaked interiors, offering a unique and satisfying dessert experience. The distinct paneer-infused richness sets it apart from the classic Jalebi.
