Recipes for the festive season - Diwali Recipes

With Diwali right around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to list out all the recipes that I have posted so far that you can make for the festive season. Many of these are ones that you make ahead and some of them can be made the day of. Here is a listing of sweet and savory recipes for the festive season. I also realized that I haven't posted a lot of savory recipes, so will be posting some through this week.

Sweets that can be made about a week in advance and which will stay for a couple of weeks.
