If you’re more focused on achieving your #fitnessgoals than nibbling on a kaju katli this Diwali (because hey, that Bond Girl bod is almost within your grasp), don’t feel bad. We’ll help you sample some Diwali delights, without a single calorie passing through your lips. Promise! Just try these delish styles on for size and channel your inner jalebi bai.

Kaju Katli

Kaju katli So, you’re fond of Kaju Katli? Well, your taste seems straight forward, but you secretly want to be noticed. How about a nice printed skirt with a border and a gold choli blouse paired with some oxidized silver jewellery?

Gulab Jamun

Gulab jamun Just like Gulab Jamun, a universal favourite, you are the life of the party. So, be an effortless diva in a pair of silk trousers and a hi-low kurti.

Cham Cham

Cham Cham If you like this shy cousin of the rasgulla, your personality too, is elusive. Choose a traditional silhouette in a kalidar anarkali fabric like chanderi, especially something with chikan work or zari panelings.


Jalebi 3 Like a true ‘jalebi’, you’re hot, twisted and you know it. Accentuate your curves in a lovely georgette sari with delicate gold embroidery.

Kesar Peda

Motichoor Laddoo

Untitled-111 The motichoor laddoo is the Kim Kardashian of all sweets. Make an impression in a boxy pleated skirt and a short kurta with a hint of orange. Complete the look with silver kadhas.

Dry Fruit Barfi
