2. Besan Ladoo:
One of the sweet dishes which is like a must for the Diwali Festival especially in the Maharashtrian household are these Besan Ladoos. The term “Besan” in Hindi denotes Chickpea flour and “ladoos” are Indian way of representing sweet balls. These ladoos come under sweet category in Diwali Faral with not so many complication involved in making them. Just few guidelines and you should be good to go.

Karanji’s are flour dumplings stuffed with a sweet mixture of fresh or dry coconut and sugar and deep fried. The health conscious can bake instead of frying. Though preparation of Karanji requires little time and effort, the taste is worth all the patience. One major advantage of Karanji is that it can be stored for weeks and used as dessert as well as snacks. In case, you have still not tasted Karanji, this Diwali give it a try. Here is the recipe.

6. Pohe Chivda:
Crispy beaten rice flavored with peanut and spices make a delicious any time snack.

The mixture is made into dough and then mechanically cut into diamond shaped units which are deep fried in ghee or butter.
