5 dessert recipes to delight your guests with this festival


INDIAN festivals are incomplete without sweets and with the onset of Diwali, people start preparing sweets to welcome their guests.

Although the stores are full of desserts on sale, nothing can beat the taste of homemade sweets. From Kaju Katli to Gajar ka Halwa, there is no end to these mouth-watering dishes.

Although Google may confuse you with several options, we’ve shortened it for you with a small but list of the best items to craft at home. So take a look:

Kaju Katli:

Perhaps the first thing that comes to mind when someone talks about sweets is this. Nothing can beat Kaju Katli when it comes to dessert. Not only does it taste great, but it’s also easy to prepare.


At first, wash and soak the cashews in water for an hour. Then drain all the water and grind it in a blender to make a fine paste. Now mix the cashew paste, dairy and cocoa powder in a saucepan. You then need to cook it over medium-low heat until the mixture becomes thick, with a soft dough, and starts to come out of the sides of the pan. Mash the dough once it is cold and take a small ball of dough and roll it into a long strip of medium thickness and give it a Chakli shape. Do the same and decorate with silver leaf.


Be it Teej, Karwa Chauth or Diwali, no festival is complete without Gujia. As good as it is, it is also quite easy to make and the best part is that you can keep it for a long time without worrying about its taste.


First of all, you need to make its filling. First, roast the semolina over low heat until it changes color. Then mix well with milkmaid, elaichi powder and dried fruits. Cook it over medium heat until the mixture is dry. Now divide it into portions.

Now pour oil into the maida and prepare the dough. Add a little water and mix to obtain a stiff paste. Knead the dough until it is soft and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes. Knead again and make as many balls as you did the portions of the mixture.

Make a flat circle with each ball and place some of the filings on it. Roll it up and bend it to shape it. Be sure to seal the edges with water. Now fry it and you’re done.

Gajar ka Halwa:

It is one of winters favorite desserts and is made in almost every home. It’s tasty and easy and no one says no when offered Gajar Ka Halwa.


Combine carrots and milk in a saucepan and boil. Cook over low heat and stir occasionally until the mixture dries. Add the milk and sugar and continue cooking over low heat. Then add the ghee and cook for another 10 minutes. You can also top it with dried fruits or mix it into the Halwa itself.

Chocolate Barfi:

There is always a chocolate lover in every house and therefore nothing can be better than this. Check the recipe.


Combine ghee, dairy and sugar in a saucepan and stir continuously over low heat until thick. Pour half into a greased plate and spread evenly after a few minutes. You then need to add the cocoa powder and cashews to the remaining mixture and stir for 2-3 minutes. Now spread the rest of the mixture on the greased baking sheet on top of the bottom layer and spread evenly. Keep it cool and once cooled, cut it into the desired shape.

Chocolate ice cream:

Although you can always get ice cream at the market, it’s not a bad idea to customize it to your own tastes.


Whip cream until frothy, then add dairy, chocolate sauce and vanilla essence and mix well. Pour it into a freezer bin and freeze until it’s half set. Now beat or grind it into a mixture until smooth. Pour it back into the tray until it freezes well. You are ready to go.
