Happy Diwali folks! The house is ready with diyas all around, garlands of flowers adding fragrance and color and not to forget my kitchen is smelling with so much goodness that I can’t wait to dig in into all the awesome goodies being prepared specially for Diwali.

So just when you were done with all the quintessential things for Diwali and wanted to make something really exciting and quick, these Pan Shots with Dry Fruit Bliss Balls has come to your rescue. For me no festival is complete without a Pan at the end of the meal. The freshness of the betel leaves and the concoction of a variety of elements that go inside that leaf is really refreshing. Here is a twist to my version of Pan, which will be a heart-throbber among your friends and family!

May God fill your lives with lots of luck and happiness. Have a safe and great Diwali!
