Diwali is synonymous with firecrackers and delicious food. No festival is complete without sweets and snacks and they are one of the most celebrated gifts and also a great way to welcome guests at home. You will find most numerous 'mithai shops' all decked up with their special preparations. There is so much variety with traditional sweets, modern snacks and fusion desserts that one could spend the whole day picking the perfect treat. But before you head out, you should be aware about what's happening behind the scenes.
The bulk preparation of sweets to meet the increasing demand during the festive season may lead to compromising on quality through adulteration. This tends to reduce the cost of production and give it a finer appearance without much effort.
You need to be careful while buying, eating and distributing food items during diwali as the issue of adulteration increases manifold during this festive time.
