Diwali, the festival of festivals, brings joy and light to the family with crackers, dress and delicious sweets, savories and food. I have presented an extensive range of tested traditional recipes in this post for you to choose and make savories & snacks for Diwali.
Diwali Snacks / Savoury : Savories brings the festival and ends the festival! Yes – we usually start making savories a week in advance and light up the mood for festivity. I recall when Murukku or some savory used to be part of my lunch box before and after Diwali for nearly 10 days! We make them in batches and reserve a portion of flour for making it on Diwali eve as most of the times the savories get over before Diwali! As savory initiates the festival, it ends the festival too – when the savory stock gets over, it symbolizes the festival is officially declared over at our home.
I have posted 25+ Murukku options, 10+ Sev / Pakoda varieties, 15+ Mixture / Chivda and special savories and 10+ snack options in this collection of savory / snacks recipes for Diwali. Additionally, I have posted some snacks & appetizer recipes for friends and family get together during Diwali!
Basics to keep in mind while cooking savory: After choosing the savoury you are going to make for Diwali, following are the basic things to keep in mind while cooking it
- Make the flour ready – It can be homemade or bought from shop. If it is homemade, give yourself ample time to buy, clean, soak and grind. If it is store bought, you might want to roast it before using for the snack.
- Make sure the press, die for press are in working condition
- Dough should not be sticky & moist
- Oil has to be sufficiently hot before frying to get crispiness and for dish not consuming more oil
- Add flavours like cumin (jeera), omam for a flavourful snack
- If your family likes the snack more spicy and salty, add more of them accordingly
- Store the snack in airtight jars to retain crispiness and taste
Safety first : I have listed some of the near miss accident scenarios while cooking in order we celebrate a safe Diwali.
- Oil splash : When the dough is moist or when you drop the content in hot oil too close, hot oil tends to splatter – ensure the prescribed portions and method in the recipes are followed
- Stove Care : Some of the families tend to make it convenient by bringing the stove to ground in order to sit & cook in large quantities. Saree / Dress has to be kept in watch for away from fire while cooking. Ensure Gas stove is switched off after use, room is ventilated and the gas cylinder is sufficiently full before cooking.
- Do not encourage children playing with balls inside the house while cooking as they could mess up the contents / splash oil when they fall over
- Long use of Muruku, Sev press for more than 2 Hrsmay cause boils / hurt hands – Use a surgical glove or make in batches
- Ensure kids consume the sweets and savory after they are brought to room temperature

1.Name 3 easy snack recipes to make for Diwali?
Murukku, Ribbon Pakoda and Kara Boondi are easy, common snacks for Diwali. Kara Boondi goes well with sambar rice and curd rice – so you can skip making curry on the next day of Diwali.
2.What is Diwali Chooranam / Diwali Leghyam and how do you make it?
Diwali Leghyam aids in the digestion after the huge variety of sweets, savouries and food intake. You can find the recipe here.
3.Which savory to make for Diwali?
While the options range from the easy 30 minutes recipes to 90 minutes recipes, my choice goes with one Murukku variety and one of the Sev / Chivda / Mixture variety. This year I am planning to make the Mullumurukku and seepu seedai!
4.I do not have the mould / press / die – Where can I get it?
It is available in the local shops dealing with vessels. Also available in Amazon and Flipkart. If there is no option to get them, make it your own style with the available appliances.
