What is Diwali without the Magic of Mithai? We all have such vivid memories of enjoying a plethora of sweets every year! From all the home-made traditional treats we make for our loved ones like laddus and karanjis to all those customary sweets that we pick up from our favourite neighborhood mithai shop like katlis and barfis, Diwali and Mithai go hand in hand. For our second Diwali collection we have an abundantly festive collection of stellar mithai to make your Diwali a whole lot brighter! 

Buy Diwali Mithai Boxes

Our Diwali Collection has a box and hamper for each kind of celebration. Our mithai assortment this year has certain returning favourites from our first Diwali as well as some new showstoppers! Wonder which mithais made it to this year as well? Our Doodh Boondi Laddus, Dodha Barfis, Malai Peda and Cutting Katlis are back because of all the love they received. Let’s introduce you to these mithais if you didn’t taste them last year. The Doodh Boondi Laddu is a festive treat hailing from Rajasthan. The batter is made with milk and while the halwai prepares the boondi , he splashes water into the ghee in regular intervals that causes rapid caramelization of the boondi giving it that chocolate brown colour. As soon as the boondis cook, they are immersed in a kadai of rabri making it all the richer. These laddus are then rolled with cashews and pista and finally garnished with a blushing red rose petal. Next up is the Dodha Barfi. This fudgy sweet is in fact a winter mithai from the Northwest Frontier. What makes this sweet rather exclusive is that it uses sprouted wheat flour that gives it that unique texture only available during the winter. Our Dodha Barfis are doused in caramel and garnished with white chocolate. The Kaju Katli, Diwali’s most ritualistic sweet treat at Bombay Sweet Shop, takes the form of cutting Katlis inspired by Bombay’s love for one by two, perfect for sharing. Lastly, this luxurious collection also has one of our classics; the Malai Peda. Diwali is about new beginnings and what better way to wish someone than with something auspicious and Malai Peda filled with a rich dry fruit filling of figs, nuts and orange zest is just that. 

Now in terms of this year’s showstoppers, we have an all new Badam Paak, a Pista Cubani Roll and a glittery avatar of our Kaju Bon Bons, dressed for the occasion. The Badam Paak is inspired by everyone’s favourite melt in the mouth treat, the Mysore Paak and the Pista Cubani roll in fact completes every Diwali mithai box. We can’t think of a Diwali Box without this sweet roll. 
You can get a taste of all these mithais in our Diwali Mithai Box. If you are a lover of cashew mithais, our Kaju Box is the apt choice! Filled with all our favourite cashew numbers, Cutting Katlis, Kaju Bon Bons and Cubani Rolls, this box is perfect for gifting. If your loved one is completely chocolate obsessed, our Chocolate Box is the one you must get.
