Give your Diwali leftovers a makeover with these mouthwatering recipes
Indian staples, international favourites, and everything in between
A brutal hangover, piles of pants that don’t fit anymore, and towers of leftovers in the fridge are some of the things you’re left to deal with after your roaring Diwali celebrations. You can sleep the first one off, and hopefully sweat off the next one, but the third one is what poses a challenge.
Staples like dal or rice don’t really make for Diwali leftovers, it’s usually sugar-laden, ghee-filled goodies that you find stuffed in Tupperware boxes threatening to pop, much like the button on your jeans that you’ve managed to squeeze into despite the mithai-top.
And it really requires some special Nathulal Halwai expertise to transform something beautiful into something even better.
But we turned to the Gen-Z edition of a resourceful aunty, who has a solution for everything – the internet. And Google chachi did not disappoint, we managed to get our hands on recipes that will give Diwali leftovers a facelift.
