Light up your Deepavali dinners with FairPrice Housebrand must-haves
Stock up with FairPrice goods to delight your Deepavali guests
Deepavali, the annual festival of lights, is on Oct 27 this year. It symbolises the triumph of light (good) over darkness (evil) and knowledge over ignorance.
During this season, homes of the celebrants will be transformed into beacons of light - brightened with oil lamps and decorated with rangoli - where gifts and prayers are exchanged and feasts are shared.
From the traditional household dishes tantalising foodies at every dinner to the cleaning essentials that spruce up the home, take this opportunity to stock up on FairPrice Housebrand must-haves and warm the hearts of your guests.
Delight your palate and kick off your Deepavali spread by serving the crowd-pleasing briyani using FairPrice Basmati Rice (2.5kg).
A product of Pakistan, it is made of 100 per cent whole kernel rice and has a nutty aroma and chewy texture.
Add flavour by simmering it in the halal-certified FairPrice Natural Coconut Cream (200ml).
It is trans fat free and has no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives.
For a tasty punch of protein, make mutton briyani with Golden Chef Singapore Rendang Paste (220g).
With no artificial colouring, the made-in-Singapore, halal-certified and ready-to-cook paste has been pre-mixed with coconut milk and is also available in Chicken Curry, Laksa and Satay Beehoon variants.
An alternative to rice is FairPrice Chapatti (30, 1.2kg).
It is ready to eat, with no oil needed - simply pan-fry for one to two minutes on a preheated frying pan. Bursting with traditional flavour, it is also a good source of dietary fibre and is trans fat free and cholesterol free.
Complete the meal with favourites like FairPrice Frozen Samosa/Curry Puff (500g).
Deliciously crispy and halal-certified, these goodies are also trans fat free. The samosas are low in cholesterol while the curry puffs are cholesterol free.
To clean up at the end of your meal, use the FairPrice 2-Ply White Facial Tissues Box - Deepavali (5 x 200 sheets), which is specially designed for the upcoming festive season.
It is affordably priced, optical brightening agent-free and promises smooth wiping as it is made of 100 per cent virgin pulp.
