    Pastries for Diwali!

    November 3rd marks the beginning of Diwali, the Festival of Lights also known as the Indian New Year, and celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and others. It celebrates the triumph of good over evil. For Hindus, Diwali celebrates the day that Lord Rama returned from a 14 year exile.

    One of the treasured customs of Diwali is the sharing of many wonderful sweets and pastries. I've collected a number of pastries here (things other than candy) that I understand to be typical Diwali treats. Please excuse me if something is not traditional - honestly, they all looked very tempting, and I have tried only a small number of them myself in restaurants.
