Wish you a Happy Diwali for the world celebrating the glorious festival of lights!
Diwali brings back the memories of my childhood that we spent in paternal grandfathers house, the early morning wakeups for shopping crackers, skipping breakfats out of happiness that we would get drying the crackers under sun,,all this while dreaming about that night’s joy of burning those colorful crackers in the verendah thats illuminated with clay pot diyas, we little heads used to get fascinated with those glitters and colored sparkles that eject out of those crackers, not to mention about the delicious food we indulge in before gettign into the crackers business
Each state in India celebrate this festival with the same spirit of ligting diyas and buring crackers, but the traditinal food thats prepared for this festival might differ. Crunchy savouries and humble ladoos are favourites across the country.A balance between the sweet and hot savouries is a must.The famous varieties being mothichoor ladoo, boondi ladoo, besan ka ladoo. While I am due to try all those traditional varieties I went for a quick fix this time with my latest craze ‘Walnuts’.You guys, one thing that fascinates me about this walnut ladoo recipe is the time it took. I wanted to keep a stop watch to measure the time while I make this ladoos next time, but as far as I can recollect this took me close to 15-18 mins!
Warning for those who love and hate nuts,
Walnuts taste a bit bland or bitter which makes many of you avoid these super healthy nuts.
But walnuts help to fight diabetes and can reduce the risk of breast cancer is what I heard and believe, so did not want to miss eating them….
