Diwali Party

Menu for our Diwali party potluck this year was:

Appetizers - Faraal from Mumbai (Bhajni chakli, shev, besan ladoo, mini baked bakarwadi); I made Khandvi/Surli chi vadi ( recipe coming soon), Rava Ladoo and Badam Katli; friends brought other yummy snacks
Drinks - Mango lassi
Dinner - Made Kofta Curry and Veg. Biryani; friends brought other delicious accompaniments & desserts

Here are couple of quick ideas to add a Diwali touch to the party:

For keeping the kids busy, we had Cookie decoration with Diwali theme.

We used store-bought sugar cookies and decorated with sparkly gel icing that comes in tubes (purchased at Jo-Anns).

The salad arrangement featured cucumber and carrot diyas.

Cut the cucumbers into slices and lop off a small part to make the diya shape. For the light, cut a baby carrot on the bias.
