    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #168 CHAAT PARTY FOR DIWALI With Diwali, the Festival of Lights, comes not only the poojas and visits to the temples but also party time. Years ago our Diwali was marked with what we back then called ‘jaman’ meaning a meal. Diwali jaman was always at our place and it would be the traditional Gujarati fare with Gur na ladwa, 1 green vegetable, 1 sabji with a gravy and potato sabji, with two farsans like kachori, samosa, arvi na paan or dhokra.
