Announcing "Sunday Snacks" event - Festive Snacks of Navratri and Diwali

In the month of October and November, the famous event of blogosphere "Sunday Snacks" is nestling here in Appyayan. This event is a brainchild of Hima of SnackORama, but Pallavi of All Thingz Yummy has took over since Hima has moved to India. Few months back, when I saw Pallavi is asking to guest host the event, as she is pregnant with twin girls. I just had to help her and took this great opportunity to host this great event. I knew how hard is going to be for her, as I went thru the same experience 2 years back and now a proud mother of twin boys. Wishing her all the best...it was quite a good experience for me and hoping the same for her........................
As I'm hosting on the month of October-November, the theme was obvious...it's the month when we, Indians are in festive mood. Three main festivals are celebrated this time - Navratri, Dusshera and Diwali. While North and West Indians celebrate Navratri and Dusshera, same time East Indians celebrate Durga puja to worship Devi Durga. And then comes Diwali or Deepavali, the festival of lights, which is celebrated all over India.
So the theme of this edition's "Sunday Snack" is  
Festive Snack of Navratri and Diwali"




Festivals in India are incomplete without delicious food. These festivals offer a great opportunity for people from different regions to enjoy the traditional delicacies that are cooked using the traditional recipes which have been passed on from generations to generations. So I want to know what snack do you make during this festive season. Share traditional or your family's favorite recipes from your part of India.
