Do you feel the slight nip in the evening breeze? Have you switched your air-conditioner from 17 degrees to 23 degrees? Well then it must be that time of the year when the twinkle of fairy lights on the streets outweigh the glare of car headlamps and the sound of festal music drowns the constant honks. In other words, it’s time to gear up for Diwali, the festival of lights, or rather, the festival of formal mithai-barter. But, for once, wouldn’t it be so much better to switch up the passé box of sweets for something more unique? Something gourmet, maybe? We think so too! Which is why we’ve put together a list of delicious gourmet treats to gift your loved ones this Diwali. Take a look!
