A good all round celebration

Posted on: October 24, 2008

Mithai are sweet treats. They form a big part of Diwali celebrations and are often given as presents to family and friends.

Some seasonal favourites include:

ghughra – a crescent-shaped pastry parcel, filled with coconut, semolina, flour, raisins, nuts and spices

gajar halwa or gajrela – a delicious dessert made from semolina or milk, carrots and cardamom, and mixed with nuts and raisins

besan ladoo – made from gram flour, sugar and cardamom and rolled into tasty balls

burfi – colourful square sweets made from thickened milk and sugar, and traditionally mixed with grated coconut or pistachio nuts

gulab jaman – made from thickened milk, flour and butter, flavoured with caradamom seeds and rose water, and shaped into balls that are deep-fried and soaked in syrup

kheer – a traditional rice pudding made with milk, sugar and rose essence or green cardamom

sheera – a traditional Diwali dessert made with semolina, cardamom, ghee (clarified butter), nuts and milk

There’s no hiding from the fact that these sweets are high in fat and sugar. But Diwali only comes once a year, so there’s no need to stop eating your favourite things, just keep an eye on how many you’re eating! Here are some healthy tips to make sure they’ll still go down a treat.
