It is the festival season, it is time to celebrate. Lots of cooking, lots of eating, lots of fun & ofcourse lots of shopping. I love to indulge myself in this festive mood and do a whole lot of shopping. I have already purchased lots of cookwares & food props. While Hubby himself is looking for few furnitures for the house which we were planning to get this time of the year. Because we can get the best deal during the festive season.
You all know that I love shopping online, and during this time we have been getting lots of deals on furnitures. We have been loving urban ladder lately and doing lots of shopping there. I am seeing some Amazing furniture from Urban ladder and been loving them. They are having so many deals and discounts for diwali. I hope you will check them out if you are looking for some cool furnitures.
Now getting back to todays festive recipe, I am gonna share you how to make the most decadent Banana Halwa.
