  • Since Diwali is an Indian Festival I have used a big Indian plate, Thali for this board. The small bowls are Kotoris .
  • There is such a huge variety of Indian sweets and snacks, and you can just fill the platter with different sweets .
  • Halwa has a good shelf life and can be made well in advance . Gajjar ka Halwa or Carrot Halwa is a popular Indian halwa which is normally served in winters . Moong Dal Halwa is a Lentil Halwa. Lauki ka Halwa or Badam ka Halwa are very delicious and can be added too.
  • Barfis & Ladoos are a must on all Indian festivals . You could keep 2-3 varieties of these. I made Besan ki Barfi , Seviyo ki Barfi , khajoor ke Ladoo . The Nuts Bite is from a sweet shop.
  • Farsaan / Namkeens will fill up the board / plate and makes a nice crunchy spicy munch . I feel after eating anything sweet our taste buds demand a little salty too.
  • Nuts act as fillers , though its almost mandatory to serve them for the festival .


  • There is no set rule to make a Diwali Sweets and Snack Platter, you can add any sweets or savoury snacks you have on hand, but remember variation and colour enhances the platter.
  • All sweets, as well as farsaans, can be storebought too.
