Anjum Anand, award-winning food writer and chef, offers Diwali advice.

Diwali is the time of year when award-winning cuisine writer and chef Anjum Anand celebrates, cooks a feast, and shares it with her family and friends. Anand grew up in London and has worked at a variety of unique restaurants around the world, including Café Spice in New York, the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles, and the Park Royal Hotel's Indian restaurant in New Delhi, enjoys excellent and fashionable food that is easy to prepare at home. In an exclusive interview with The Indian Sun, Anand said that this year's celebrations will be low-key due of COVID-19. However, she believes that this should not discourage anyone from continuing the festive tradition of cooking and eating with loved ones at home. Anand discusses Diwali in this video, as well as some dishes and ideas for a great Diwali feast.

What does the festival of Diwali mean to you?

Diwali is the Hindu New Year, and after the year we've all had, I believe we should all take advantage of this opportunity to wish for a brighter year ahead. We spring clean our homes in the weeks leading up to Diwali and adorn them with flowers, coloured powders, and candles to welcome Laxmi, the goddess of wealth and success, into our homes and lives. We prepare a feast for friends and family every year. We may not be able to invite them over this year, but we will celebrate, cook, and share, especially with those who do not have family. It's a happy occasion as well as a chance to reflect and plan for the coming year.

What are your plans for the vacation and what will be on the menu?

Because we live in the United Kingdom, we are unable to see friends and family outside the house this year. As a result, this Diwali will be considerably more low-key for us. We can celebrate this year by eating delicious cuisine and spending quality time with immediate relatives (within the household), as well as focusing on bringing in prosperity and happiness for the coming year (which is especially important this year).

Giving something sweet to your friends and family is considered good luck during all Indian festivals, so my family and I always buy a lot of Indian mithai (small self-contained desserts) and Indian sweets the day before Diwali, or in the morning, in the hopes of being able to drop some on the doorsteps of some of our close friends and family.

This year, what Diwali food recipes do you recommend?

Our Diwali table is always vegetarian, and we make every effort to make it unique by using a variety of flavours, textures, and colours. There is always a large bowl of lentils, which provide the meal's protein, as well as a range of vegetables prepared in various ways—some stir-fried with spices, others cooked in sauces—as well as greens, crunchy bits, and meatier bits, such as mushrooms. Indians are always proud of their vegetarian meals, and you won't miss the meat.

Here are a few of my suggestions:

•             Potato cakes with chickpea chaat from TST.

•             Classic Rice Kheer

•             Crispy Lentil Fritters

•             Egg and Chickpea Biryani

What are some simple cooking tips for those who aren't experts?

Make assured you have a fantastic recipe to follow.

Before you begin cooking, make sure you have all of your items ready, diced, and weighed.

Try to prepare foods ahead of time as much as possible—a biryani, for example, benefits from time, so it may be something you make in the days leading up to Diwali;

Invite others to help—I always include my family in the preparation of our Diwali dinner. Also, enquire about your friends' and family's tested recipes.

Also, if you can, consider shortcuts, such as using The Spice Tailor products—biryanis take a long time to prepare, but with ours, you can have something on the table in a matter of minutes.
