    Hi Laxmi,

    A great question for this season! My favourites are okkarai made by my mom's hassle free recipe. No pain, lots of gain. The next is wheat halwa made by Mrs ChitVish's pressure cooker method. This is my husband's favourite, so I invest a lot of care in this. Then, I have a good cook who make fabulous milk sweets all with milk powder. I have asked her to make chamcham, kajukatli, kalakhand. Savouries- not too keen.

    Happy Diwali!

    Hi my favourite is Mysore Pak and not Mysore Pa. That too home made with the specifications given by my mom. Planning to make it as my daughter loves it so much.

    Hi dear ILites,

    Wish you all a very happy Diwali.

    My favourite sweet is Kaju burfi. My daughter also loves it. So, I make this sweet at home every diwali. This year is my daughter's "Talai deepawali" and so I am a little busy. Meet you all later.

    Keep smiling

    Bhageerathi

    Happy Diwali to all Indus Ladies. Glad to be a part of this forum. Staying far from families, relatives and friends, Indus ladies has become a family now. Thank you to Indus Ladies.

    Coming back to the Diwali sweet....I am not very fond of sweets. Being a North indian, I like Ras malai, Gazar ka Halwa and Rasgulla sometime. My husband got sweet tooth. He loves to eat sweets. Any given opportunity, he will never say no to sweet. We always buy sweets from the stores only.

    Hi

    Frankly speaking i really dont have patience to cook sweets at home... and amongst punjabis nobody does yaar... i have tried a few things, like moong dal halwa earlier at home... but its really tedious and time consuming task... i wud rather buy a mithai ka dabba from the market.... than sweat myself and cook at home...

    i'm not even aware of the sweets in the poll except gulab jamuns and laddoo... we like Pinnis, doda burfi, kaju burfi, chhenna murki, gulab jamuns jalebis are all time favs...
