 DESSERT
  • Desserts and sweets have always been an integral part Of Indian cuisine, with milk based desserts being a predominant feature. An astounding variety of sweets is available from different parts of the country. While they may be a little bit over sweet to Western palates, a small portion of those exquisite desserts is the perfect ending to every meal. It is worth remembering that most Indian sweets are an aid in digestion and are normally consumed after spicy meals. Many of them are made with fruit, nuts, spices and milk. Coconut is a natural ingredient for a sweet dish. Indian desserts are often decorated with cardamom, raisins, almonds, pistachios, cashew nuts and fruit.
