Kaju Katli / Cashew Nut Burfi
Celebrated with great excitement, #Diwali (falls on Oct 30 this year) is one of the prime festivals that unites the whole of India. As some of you may not know, this day has a deep significance for the #Sikh community. They celebrate it as Bandi chor diwas, which means day of liberation.

The historical event is a reminder to look beyond ourselves and use the privileges that has been bestowed upon us, for others who are less fortunate. The idea is that by making others happy we are in turn making ourselves happier. It brings about unity and instills charity in the hearts of people. Over the years, besides exchanging gifts and sweets with family and friends, we have developed a habit of empathy. We reach out in giving to the communities via food banks, hospitals, animal shelters and other registered charities. By helping others we are in turn giving ourselves a nice little bonus of happiness. To read more how I celebrate diwali, click the link below.

So with that I wish everyone a very happy safe, joyous and sparkling Diwali and bring you a nice little treat from my #glutenfree kitchen- Kaju Katli. It is one of the simplest and delicious sweet to make with two ingredients.

A little too late, but Happy Diwali Everyone. This year since I am in USA, I thought of making a laxmiji rangoli at my place and also had lit a small candle and bought indoor plants with flowers. #peacefuldiwali #butmissedindiandiwali

Indian Festival :: Diwali...

Diwali or Deepavali also known as the festival of lights is the Hindu festival celebrated every year in India. It is one of the major festivals of Hinduism. It spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair. Its celebration includes millions of lights shining on housetops, outside doors and windows, around temples and other buildings in the communities and countries where it is observed. The festival preparations and rituals typically extend over a five-day period, but the main festival night of Diwali coincides with the darkest, new moon night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika in Bikram Sambat calendar. In the Gregorian calendar, Diwali night falls between mid-October and mid-November.

Before Diwali night, people clean, renovate, and decorate their homes and offices. On Diwali night, people dress up in new clothes or their best outfit, light up diyas (lamps and candles) inside and outside their home, participate in family puja (prayers) typically to Lakshmi – the goddess of fertility and prosperity. After puja, fireworks follow, then a family feast including mithai (sweets), and an exchange of gifts between family members and close friends. Deepavali also marks a major shopping period in nations where it is celebrated.

The name of festive days as well as the rituals of Diwali vary significantly among Hindus, based on the region of India. In many parts of India, the festivities start with Dhanteras, followed by Naraka Chaturdasi on second day, Deepavali on the third day, Diwali Padva dedicated to wife-husband relationship on the fourth day, and festivities end with Bhai Dooj dedicated to sister-brother bond on the fifth day.

Happy Diwali! ♥
