About Diwali Festival:
Diwali is a special festival in India filled with happiness and light. This year, it falls on November 12, 2023.
Diwali also called Divali, Deepavali, or the “festival of lights” is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair.
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 Kartik. In the Gregorian calendar, Diwali night falls between mid-October and mid-November.
In many parts of India, the festivities start with Dhanteras, followed by Naraka Chaturdasi on the second day, Diwali on the third day, Diwali Padva dedicated to wife-husband relationship on the fourth day, and festivities end with Bhai-dhuj dedicated to sister-brother bond on the fifth day. Dhanteras usually falls eighteen days after Dussehra.
I can never forget the days when we would wait for Diwali, just after Durga Puja even though that meant that we were close to the end of our vacations. Those days, new dresses were only something that would happen twice a year – on Dussehra and Diwali. My mom would make a small house of mud with small windows and doors. And we (my brothers and sisters) would decorate it with colors, flowers, toys, and diyas. Nostalgic, I am… 🙂
The kids in our locality would compete with each other on who is going to burn the most crackers. And the measurement of this was even funny. The next day we would come out early in the morning and see whose front yard has the most cracker papers. The joy of winning cannot be expressed.
Another thing was the sweets that the elders in the house would distribute after the Lakshmi Pooja gets over. We would then start lighting diyas everywhere and that is when we would get the permission to go ahead with our cracker adventures.
Somehow Diwali has changed over the years and I wonder if the kids of today will ever be able to experience the real and clean Diwali that we used to celebrate.
I can never forget any of these and I am sure none of you would be able to. And also I cannot forget the tasty Diwali recipes that my Mom would make.
So here are some of the Diwali Sweets recipes that I have learned from my Mom which she would make on Diwali and some of the recipes like pakkavada, boondi ke ladoo and mixture I have learned from my Mother-in-law.

Diwali Sweets Recipes – Collection of Diwali Recipes 2023
Diwali, the beloved festival celebrated as the “Festival of Lights” in India, is not just a time for celebrating happiness and brightness, but also a delightful treat for the senses and taste buds.
During Diwali, homes are brightened by the glow of small lamps, and the air is filled with the scent of delicious sweets. From traditional treats such as gulab jamuns and jalebis to delightful favorites like kaju katli and rasgullas, Diwali feels like a festive celebration of tasty food.
Every tasty bite shares a tale of happiness and heartfelt blessings, turning the festival into an unforgettable and treasured experience for everyone to enjoy and remember.
Furthermore, since the essence of Diwali is about the victory of good over evil, sweets play a crucial role in honoring this triumph. They have always been a fundamental aspect of the festivities, traditionally offered to Gods and Goddesses with pure devotion.
I would recommend preparing Diwali sweets or mithai at home, just like in those olden days, rather than buying them from the market. The taste of Homemade Mithai is the best. So let’s have a look at Diwali Recipes 2023.
