A Deepavali without Kaji Katli is like a CNY without an Ang Pow. This rich and sweet Indian cuisine is one of the easiest sweet recipes to follow.

5. Seven Cups Burfi

As the name suggests, it's delicious and easy to make sweet dish involving 7 equal quantities of cakes. If you're looking for an easy Deepavali dish, then this Seven Cups Burfi is a must try.
