Plan what food you want to serve in advance to have a trouble free Diwali party. Keep pakodas, chakris, salted cashew nuts etc for snacks and gujhias, shakkarpare, jalebi for sweets. You can also give dahi vadas as starter. No party can start without chips, popcorns and cold drinks. Decide your main menu depending upon the type of eaters. You can mix vegetarian like mixed veg, aloo dum, paneer gravies and non-vegetarian recipes like mutton korma, kebabs, chicken curry etc to make your party a huge hit. For alcoholic drinkers, serve wine or other cocktails with spicy starters. Fresh juices, smoothies, shakes etc are other good options.
