Come Diwali and the patisserie chef in you comes out! If you are anything like me, you spend the weeks leading upto Diwali browsing through mithai recipes, jotting down ingredients and making sure you have everything to make your favourite sweets. But what you forget is the months of careful eating and weight watching. Diwali is no reason to gain back all the weight you so labouriously lost. But Diwali isn't the same without sweets, right? So here's what you should do -- make healthy mithais and desserts! There are so many healthy mithai recipes like date and nut mitha or the date and walnut laddoo that are rich, decadent and will add all the sweetness you need during this festive season. Another must-try recipe is this kesar malai laddoo, or kesar malai pinni. The name itself sounds so yumm that you know for sure that the recipe is definitely a winner!
