Story
During Diwali we exchange Faraal (assorted sweet and spicy snacks) among neighbors and relatives. So almost all the cupboards in our kitchen is full with the containers, full of Faraal. I love sweets and at the time of Diwali it difficult to control myself from eating sweets. When I am bored of eating ladoos, karangi or any other sweet dish thikat sev come to my rescue to help me stabilize my taste buds. Other than Diwali, I like my bowl of Thikat Sev with a hot cup of tea.
