DIWALI – the festival which keeps everyone busy.. Festival of lights, fire crackers, house cleaning, new clothes, exchange of gifts and more gifts, get-together’s, diwali dinner’s, puja and not to forget food, mithai (sweets), more food and more and more sweets.. Foodies Festival for me..
Ever since our childhood we are so accustomed to invite guests for dinner parties or visit them, exchange gifts and love.. Those moments were filled with happiness, fun and made loads of memories to treasure.. But now being far away from home Diwali is not the same.. We hardly have parties or the same zest to celebrate the festival.. But yes we try our best to celebrate it by organising a couple of dinner parties, lighting up our house, sparkles for kids, puja but still there is something missing.. I am sure every person who is away from home misses the festival spirit and fun immensely which can only be felt back home..
So this year feeling nostalgic and longing to be home during the festival, I have opened my blog to my blogger friends.. I am inviting my fellow bloggers to do a guest post for Diwali.. With lot’s of gratitude I appreciate you all taking out time from your busy schedules ..In this way at least we are exchanging recipes!! Awesome recipes are the greatest gift for food enthusiast; so I am collecting mine:)

Thank you Subhashni for sharing such an amazing and unusual recipe, and really appreciate for taking time out and creating such an creative dish for my series.. Please click here to get the step by step detailed recipe..
Few highlights from her recipe post –
- An amazing sweet from the land of coconuts is this Black Halwa. Though This is an authentic recipe of Kerala, I have tasted this number of times from my Srilankan friend.
- The coconut milk , coconut oil and ghee gives awesome flavor to this recipe.
Use traditional heavy bottomed pan instead of Non stick pansKeep stirring patiently in low or medium flame and never keep the flame high.
Thank you Subhashni once again for the lovely recipe and I wish you good luck ..
