Diwali Dinner: Indian Festival of Lights 

When: Fri., Nov. 8, 6-8 p.m. 2013
The five-day Hindu “festival of lights,” Diwali (aka Divali and Deepavali) is an official holiday in India. Marking the end of the harvest season, it is associated with the wealth goddess Lakshmi and is traditionally celebrated at home by the lighting of small clay oil lamps symbolizing the inner spirit and the victory of good over evil. To mark the occasion, a buffet Diwali dinner in the second-floor dining commons at the International House (2434 Piedmont Ave., Berkeley) will feature such classic dishes as lamb vindaloo, chicken tikka masala, gobi aloo, palak paneer, samosas, and kheer (sweet rice pudding), plus various types of chutneys.
