Vegan Diwali Treat? Yes, Please! (Published first on Pyjama People)

IMG_5451.JPG

There are hardly any Vegan Indian sweets to speak of, or to taste. While many Indians are vegan, gluten, dairy products, and sugar are pretty much the main ingredients to all our sweets. So what’s a vegan to do on Diwali?

First, remember, history’s got your back. There are a few gluten-free Indian sweets you can gorge on.

Boondi Laddoo are made made entirely with gram flour or besan entirely, plus who doesn’t love this classic, right? Similarly, Coconut Barfi or Laddoo with its grated coconut base makes it fully gluten-free!There are also other usual suspects such as Besan Laddoo, which is made with gram flour, and Til Laddo, which is made with sesame.

But, these ain’t no Jalebi, I know. You could try and fry yours in a vegan-friendly oil… but I can’t guarantee that how that’ll turn out.
Instead, why not try my Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake instead?
You know what they say? If you can’t join the treat time, beat them with your own-made deliciousness!

    1. Hi Debani, Thanks so much ! Glad to hear that. Applesauce has to be made without the skin. Peel the apple ( 2 mid sized ones ) and slice it. Bake it in the oven for 10 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius. Boil it with 1 cup of water and 1 tsp of cinnamon powder and puree it. Applesauce is ready for use.

      Cane Sugar is unrefined sugar derived directly from sugarcane. It looks like sand in texture and colour. Parry’s sells it as the brand Amrit in retail shops.
