Eat. Diwali is all about the food, so this is absolutely the time to showcase your cooking skills. There is often mithai and other delicious sweets during this holiday, but you can also spice things up in the kitchen with savory delights. Pick up Madhur Jaffrey’s newest cookbook , “At Home with Madhur Jaffrey” . If you don’t have time to go to the bookstore, there are some great recipe sites online. One of CitySaheli’s favorites is http://showmethecurry.com/. With instructional videos to help guide you, cooking up a South Asian storm couldn’t have been made easier.
Happy Diwali Sahelis!
