Spice Up Your Diwali

Diwali is a time for family. And what better way to bring your family together this Diwali than with a scrumptious meal? Prepare all your favourite family dishes with spices from Joburg’s top emporiums. For convenience, we recommend Akhalwayas Spice Emporium.

With over 40 years experience, they can help you find just the right spice for that perfect dish. 

Have a little extra time on your hands before the celebrations begin? Then head out to B.Nagiahs Butchery in Midrand or Randburg. Not only can you find premium cut mutton here, but also spices, vegetables, biscuits and sweetmeats. In addition, they have the most meaningful Diwali greeting cards to hand out to all your friends, family and neighbours. B.Nagiahs Diwali pop-up store at their Midrand and Randburg branches will be having awesome sales and specials until Sunday, 27 October 2019. Get yourself a new clay lamp, homemade eggless butter biscuits and Diwali boxes to pack up all your lovely sweetmeats. 


Baked Treats

If you prefer to get your sweetmeats and biscuits from a specialised bakery then look no further than Shayona Bakery. Located in Lenasia, Mayfair and Laudium, this bakery offers you a Diwali with a difference. All their products are hand manufactured by individuals living within disadvantaged communities. Operating as a non-profit community restaurant, Shayona takes all the hassle out of preparing for Diwali with their much sought-after boxes, sweetmeats, biscuits and prepared meals.

Alternatively, you can treat the family to a wholesome lunch at Holi Cow Restaurant, offering specials on traditional Fish Curry, Prawn Russo, Lamb Breyani, Lamb Mince Koftas and many other family-style dishes.

For dessert, Holi Cow has whipped up some delicious sweet delights.
