Diwali Hamper from Asda- a review
Diwali, known as the ‘Festival of lights’ is a lovely time of the year. Lots of lights, yummy food and a lovely clean house to match.
The preparation for Diwali starts a fortnight before. You start with cleaning the house. Throw away all the old and unwanted stuff and buy new clothes for yourself.
A gleaming sparkling house is where Laxmi, the Goddess of wealth, wants to visit and bless everyone with lots of wealth and good times. Diwali is celebrated for 4-5 days starting from Dhanteras, when Goddess Laxmi is worshipped , Diwali day and goes on to Bhaubeej, the day when the brothers visit their sisters houses.
My memories of Diwali are making lots of sweets with my Mum and sharing them with our neighbours, waking up at wee hours to burst crackers, so much fun!
So while Diwali is just round the corner, the lovely folks over at Asda sent me this beautiful big hamper filled with such great goodies!
The Hamper contains a selection of stuff for the Home, personal use and for cooking!
The Home stuff includes cleaning products- the most vital thing for Diwali and includes Dishwasher tabs, scrubbers and cleaning wipes and a spray.
The Personal stuff, brings you the Indian touch. They are products made by Dabur India- a facewash, scented oil for the hair. Very very thoughtful indeed.
The food items include some spices, a bag of good Basmati rice and Bombay mixture and delicious Rubicon Mango juice.
All in all, the perfect hamper for Diwali. Thank you guys!
I’m planning to make a lovely Coconut Rice with the rice they have given
and make some lovely Cornflakes Chiwda with the mixture.
The Basmati Rice can also be used to make Payesh- the Bengali Rice Pudding.
