Happy Diwali! The festival of lights is here we’ve all got our kitchens in a buzz! This year, let our pait pooja (literally translating to worship of the stomach!) yield the best fruit – perfect health! A ‘Healthy Diwali Sweet and Savory Menu’ might seem like an oxymoron – but we’ve whipped up just that. Check out the recipes below and prepare them. None of these recipes contain refined flours, refined sugar, extracted oil, milk, ghee, butter, curds or any other disease-causing ingredient. What does this mean? These absolutely yummy dishes can prevent and even reverse diseases like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, autoimmune conditions, depression and even cancers! Go ahead, get your hands dirty and cook up a feast fit for a King!
We have a wide range of dishes for you to choose from:
- Deepavali Legiyam or Diwali Lehyam, the one special recipe that every single South Indian household is cooking for Diwali
- Baked mullu murukku, ribbon pakoda, omapudi or sev, sweet diamond biscuit, and mixture made with millets to spice things up
- Okkorai, paithama laddoo or lentil laddoo, Payasam and Karjikai to satisfy your sweet cravings
- Tila udhak and moonga udhak (Did you know plant based vegan mylks were all the rage in India, centuries ago? Check them out!)
- Make a complete meal with Rasayana, Pickle , Kosambari, Millet, or Puliogare or Chitranna, Rasam and Sundal
- Peanut mylk to use instead of cow’s milk in any recipe of your choice!
Happy Diwali! Happy Feasting! 😀
