The season of festivities and celebrations is almost upon us, so help us celebrate it better with some mouth-watering traditional recipes!

Diwali is approaching and it's time to get in the holiday mood!

Send us your favourite festive recipes. It can an unusual sweet recipe (like Rabdi, Coconut Barfi and Jalebis) handed down through generations.

Or an interesting preparation of a salty snack (namkeen) served at festival time like Chuda, Mathri, Nimki (Khara Shankarpali), Chakli and Muruku.

Or even a special fasting delicacy -- maybe something cooked at home for pujas?

Write in to us at with your name, hometown and any interesting details about the origin of the recipe, along with a photograph if possible. We'll publish the best preparations right here on and in India Abroad.
