If Dashain is all about the savories (read various mutton delicacies), Tihar is the time we revel in the sweet delights. People from different cultures and regions prepare various types of ‘mithais’ or desserts to offer to the gods worshipped during this festival. So, for anyone with a sweet tooth, Tihar is as close to a sweetness heaven as it gets. Here are five such delights that we recommend you to not miss out on.
You enjoy Tihar because it gives you a reason to gorge on sel roti, dipping it in a cup of hot tea, and pop that one more laddu in your mouth without feeling guilty. You might love it because the string lights you have put on your balcony purely for aesthetics finally gets a purpose. Or all the colors and lights just make you happy, not to mention the sweet smell of marigolds in the air this time of the year that makes your heart swell. Or maybe your sibling has come home and you get to celebrate Bhai Tika after five years.
