Emirates to sweeten Diwali season with classic Indian delicacies

Posted 12 October 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates will offer special Diwali delicacies for the celebratory season. The special treats will be available for customers across all classes during the week of Diwali celebrations, from 16th- 22nd October, 2017, on all on flights to India from Dubai.


Diwali, the festival of lights, is a significant celebration among Indians across the world, and food plays an equally vital role in the festivities. The classic sweets associated with Diwali are blended with colours and flavours with traditional Indian culinary elements, like the nostalgic Besan ke ladoos and Dry fruit burfis.

Emirates will serve Motichoor Ladoos traditionally prepared using chickpea flour, ghee, cardamom and saffron flavoured sugar syrup. The sweets will be presented in decorated boxes with special artwork and garnished with pistachio and silver leaf embellishment, representing the traditional decoration of Diwali.

The special Diwali sweets will be offered on all Indian hot meal trays on Emirates Economy class.

Business and First class customers will be offered the Ladoos together with a Dry fruit burfi treat - a sweet made with cashew nuts, almonds, pistachios, walnuts, raisins, dried figs and dates. The treats will be served in boxes decorated with traditional Diwali light artwork, as an alternative to Premium Chocolates.
