Round-up of Sunday Snacks : Festive snacks of Navratri & Diwali

It's time for the "Sunday Snacks" Round-up for the month of Oct-Nov....the theme was Festive snacks of Navratri and Diwali.....This event is a brainchild of Hima of SnackOrama, she passed the rein to Pallavi of All Thingz Yummy for some reason and this time guest hosted by me...I want to thank Pallavi for giving me the opportunity to host this great event. I totally loved the whole experience and proudly presenting the round-up.
Through this theme, I wanted to know some Indian regional snack recipes, what we make during the festival time. Some foodies also sent me sweet recipes, which I accepted, as without making your mouth sweet, any festival is incomplete, especially Diwali.

I want to thank wholeheartedly to all the foodies who sent their entries for this event. The next edition is hosted by Manju of Mirch Masala...for the announcement of theme, checkout here.
