6 Favourite snacks you’ll find at a Deepavali open house
Festival of (food and) lights
Happy Deepavali! As every celebration calls for scrumptious food and delicious snacks, we decided to go with the latter and list some of our favourites.
1. Murukku (of course)
It's not Deepavali if there's no murukku. Then again, it's so popular that it's a common snack in our everyday life.
Similar to murukku but much thinner yet just as addictive.
A traditional North Indian - specifically Punjabi - snack, there is both a sweet and savoury version of this flaky biscuit. For the latter, it's usually fried with various spices to make it more fragrant and crispy.
It's hard to find anyone who doesn't fancy a good ladoo but be warned as these ball-shaped snacks are so sweet, it's not really something to binge-eat on (like murukku).
This pretzel-shaped sweet gets its bright orange colour from saffron and can be served either warm or cold.
6. Kuih ros
Not exactly of Indian origins but it's a pretty common (and delicious) find at most open houses during Deepavali and it is sometimes known as bee hive or achu murukku.
