Light up this Diwali Dinner table not only with colorful diyas and rangoli but also celebrate more with your homemade traditional festive sweets. Sweet Rice and Jamun Bhog recipe is my version of Sita Bhog, a Bengali sweet which we usually buy from sweet shops in Kolkata.

This year I have tried to keep it simple and easy and cook for bhog to offer our Almighty Ganesh and Lakshmi and then distribute to my guests.  A healthy guilt free cooking is done best when organic ingredients are used, you can use sweet potato for making jamuns but I have used homemade paneer instead. Serve in terracotta bowls or pack as sweet gift hampers for your guests.
