This Diwali: Fusion Food, Mocktails, Games To Delight Guests!


Celebrating Diwali this season should come with extra zest and spices, complemented by a variety of flavorful mocktails to make it more intriguing. Delight your guests with something exceptional and unique, ensuring the celebration remains unforgettable.

Explore these fusion foods, flavorful mocktails, and Diwali games to elevate your party's fun.


Gujiya Baklava

Prepare Baklava with a 'mawa gujiya filling' for an Indian twist on this Middle Eastern dessert, sure to delight guests with a sweet tooth.

The best part? It can be stored in the freezer for up to three months in an airtight container, so make as many as you'd like.

Samosa Tostadas

Fill the flaky Indian puffs with potatoes and chickpeas, top them with spices, and place them on tortillas.

Any kind of chutney can be at the sides to add an extra kick.


The most popular method involves using a naan as the pizza base. Add all the toppings you love, coat it with cheese, and then bake to delight your taste buds.

Gulab Jamun Donuts

Use a premix of Gulab Jamuns and follow the instructions. However, this time, use a cookie cutter to shape the dough into donuts and poke a hole in each.

Fry the donuts until they are golden brown, let them sit for 10 minutes, and then dip them in rose syrup to soak.

Bread Chaat

Toast the bread, cut it into small pieces, and add boiled potatoes, onions, coriander chutney, imli chutney, and sev.


Blueberry Mojito Royale

Take fresh blueberries and add them to the bottom of a mixing bowl with mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice.

Slightly crush the blueberries with a stirrer or wooden spoon. Serve in a glass, adding crushed ice, and garnish with mint on top.

Peach Strawberry Lemonade

Make a puree of peaches and strawberries, then add it to lemonade with crushed ice. Remember to garnish well.

Bloody Red

Blend tomatoes, green chilies, ice cubes, and bell pepper together. Then add this mixture to orange juice. Next, sprinkle in a pinch of rock salt and pepper powder, garnish with celery leaves, and serve.


Card Games

Made famous because Goddess Lakshmi bestows her goodwill upon the player, why not indulge in games like Blackjack, Teen Patti, Rummy, and Bluff?
