Diwali is nearing and its that time when we make some irresistible traditional treats at home. We are so excited about diwali every year as away from mother country we don't want to miss the fun, so we usually visit the lakshmi mandir and do lakshmi pooja in the same manner as we do there and regardless the sweets and prasads we make at home. I know how my south indian neighbors were so kind to share those diwali treats right from adhirasam, sundal, sweets pongal , vadai, payasam,murukku its a never ending list we used to receive from neighbors back there and we used share our traditional mathiri, sakkarpara, maida biscuit,sweet rice , gujiya,kajas, magad( a rajasthani sweet), besan chikki etc etc ... My moms sister used to make all these and she used share them all with us. Will miss the sharing part as all my neighbors have moved to a new a place and this years diwali I don't have much neighbors to share with but will share all the sweets I make with my H's office colleagues .
Diwali means a lot cooking and lot enjoyment doing pooja in the evening and bursting fire crackers in the night. Coming to the recipe Jalebi is my fav sweet and it is little time consuming if we keep them for fermentation overnight we can make them the next day so here is an instant way to make them using eno fruit salt. I have made both the versions before though the traditional way gives great results this a quick way to make them the same day. If you are looking for some quick and instant diwali sweets then this a delicious option. There is always a confusion with jangiri and jalebi let me highlight here jangiri is made with urad dal which i have already posted and jalebi is made with maida and curd , though it is irony that in some shops in chennai they call jangiri as jalebi. Jalebi is a perfect tea time snack with combines with samosa in north they have jalebi with chai and it the perfect combo you have to try it once.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#45.
