Ten Diwali Savouries

The Hindu celebration of Diwali and Hindu New year are approaching and a lot of the Hindu ladies will be busy making traditional sweets and savouries or shopping for these at their favourite mithai farsan shops.

Here are my recipes for the top 10 of the savouries nearly everyone likes  to prepare

  1.  First one is my favourite – Kenya chevdo made with lentils, flaked rice, potato chips and nuts.

2. Chakri made with a mixture of rice, chick peas, potato and wheat flours.


3. Tikha Gathia made with chick peas and rice flour.

4. Sev – made with chick pea flour with some rice flour added to give it some crispiness.


5. Sev mamra made with chick pea and rice flour with puffed rice.  This one is a favourite with children.  Great for topping chaats and other street foods such as ragda pattis. 


6. Farsi puri made with plain flour.


7.  Chora Fari made with a mixture of flours.


8. Roasted nuts – roasted in the microwave.  So easy to make and great to serve with any drinks.  I could munch these any time.img_2376

9.  Lamba gathiya made with chick pea flour.  These are not as difficult to make as made out by the chefs.  A Sunday favourite with jalebis.

10.  Farari chevdo – A mixture of nuts and potato chips specially made to have during the hindu fasts.
