It's Diwali! Looking for sweets
The Hindu holiday Diwali starts today. When I lived in Minneapolis I sometimes found Indian restaurants or grocery stores that had special sweets on the menu or for sale this week. Any recommendations on where to go for Diwali sweets here in Seattle?
There's just one place in the entire Seattle metro area that I would recommend: Punjab Sweets in Kent.
For starters, they make their own sweets; most do not. They have an excellent selection of burfi, gulab jamun, snack mixes, etc. Fresh jalebi usually on Fridays & Saturdays. They also have a decent menu of vegetarian food. IMHO they're better than anything I've found in Vancouver, and rival sweets I've had in Southall.

I'm a fan of Indian sweets. If you're in North Seattle, this grocery has a small counter with a selection of sweets. Pretty good quality for Seattle. I'm guessing you'd find better in the Redmond area.
