The festive season is here in full swing and we cannot contain our excitement. This year Diwali would be celebrated on 7th November, 2018. Diwali celebrates the homecoming of Lord Ram after defeating the demon king Ravana. Decorating the house with multi-coloured rangolis, oil lamps and lights, wearing new clothes and feasting till your heart's content; there are multiple reasons that make Diwali one of our favourite festivals.

 2. Chakli

Also known as murukku, this coiled and crunchy snack is one of the significant parts of Diwali faral (Diwali food menu), an assortment of snacks consumed in Maharashtrian households on occasion of Diwali and Narak Chaturdashi. It is made of besan and carom seeds and serves as a nice contrast to the overload of sweets during the festive season. Here's the recipe of chakli.
