This week, across the world, many Hindus, Sikhs and Jains will be celebrating Diwali. Diwali is known as the festival of light and marks the beginning of the Indian New Year. The auspicious festival represents the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness – a joyous occasion that represents families coming together to celebrate happiness and prosperity.

If you’re celebrating Diwali this week, you’re likely to be busy decorating the house with clay lights (diyas) and rangoli patterns. You’re also likely to be planning a feast of colourful and delicious dishes to share with family and friends, so we’re sharing some light and tasty dishes which will still keep you on track with your weight-loss goals.

Slimming World Diwali recipes

Paneer and pepper shashlik

Although the word shashlik is actually Russian, skewers loaded with chunks of marinated food are enjoyed across Asia. Every country and region has its own delicious way of preparing them – Indian versions are sumptuously spiced!

Aubergine and pepper balti

Some say balti is Britain’s very own contribution to the world of curry – while others say it actually comes from Pakistan or northern India. Either way, we think this spice-fest is simply balti-ful!

To everyone celebrating, we’re wishing you a very Happy Diwali and a prosperous and joyful New Year!
