Four healthy Divali recipe ideas

Divali is a time of prayer and spending time with family and friends – and also delicious food.

In Trinidad and Tobago, Divali is known as a time to enjoy delicious delicacies such as curry, roti, and sweets such as gulab jamoon, barfi, jelabi and more.

However, some may be looking to stay healthy while still enjoying Divali treats, so here are some healthy recipe ideas for your favourite Divali snacks:


1. Coconut barfi

This recipe for Coconut Barfi uses shredded coconut and cuts down on the sweetened condensed milk but the sugar content is still a bit high so adjust to suit: https://bit.ly/2Wb2GxA


2. Gluten-free Saheena Bites
