Dussehra is a popular Indian festival. As Dussehra represents the triumph of truth over evil, it inspires everyone to walk the path of truth, righteousness, and dharma. It serves as a reminder that in the end, truth always triumphs. The Dussehra festival is celebrated all over India under various names and rituals to commemorate Lord Rama's defeat of the demon king Ravana.

It is all about the food when celebrating any festival, and Dussehra is no exception. The most popular items are sweet dishes. Here are a few sweets to try this Dussehra.

Besan Laddoos

During any festival in India, this is the most common sweet in every household.
Gram flour, sugar, and ghee are used to make this dessert. On the last day of Navratri, it is also used as a sweet offering to the Goddess Durga. These are also made with dry fruits, saffron, and cardamom powder. Everyone enjoys this sweet dish.

Coconut Barfi

This barfi is said to have originated in the southern part of India. It is now so popular that people all over India enjoy it. Freshly grated coconut, khoya, or condensed milk are used to make this barfi. It melts in your mouth as soon as you bite into it, making this barfi a special treat for Dussehra.

Badam Halwa

Almond flour, sugar and ghee are used to make this traditional Indian sweet dish. It's full of flavour, delicious, and eye-catching colour. It's common to find badam halwa in South India. As a result, it's served only on special occasions as a special dessert. This too makes it onto the list as a Dussehra sweet.

Khus Khus Kheer

 It is a traditional and authentic creamy dessert made with coconut milk and poppy seeds. It is one of the traditional Indian sweet recipes from Karnataka cuisine, made especially for festivals and celebrations. It is a natural body coolant to enjoy during the summer. Kheer means "sweet," and it comes in a variety of forms, including rice and lentils.


Rasgulla is the most popular year-round sweet dish from Bengal. This milk-based treat is made by curdling milk, draining the whey, and then kneading the milk solids into balls. Hot sugar syrup is used to cook these balls. Because they're so popular during Durga puja and Dussehra, you'll often see them served to Goddess Durga as part of her prasad offerings.


This is another sweet dish that is popular among all Indians. This crunchy dessert is made with gramme flour and sugar. Lord Ram is said to have enjoyed shashkuli, a sweet similar to a modern-day jalebi. Most people enjoy eating hot jalebis to celebrate Lord Ram's victory over Ravana.

No festival would be complete without sweets, and Dussehra is a time when people all over India indulge in a different kind of sweet. In India, the desire for sweets does not fade away. The sweets mentioned above are a must-try this Dussehra.
