‘Colour Co-ordinate’ and serve Mithai

[red_spacer spacer_margin=”30″][/red_spacer]

Traditional ‘mithais’ are at the forefront of any traditional Diwali celebration, even though cakes and chocolates have conveniently made an entry into our palettes and homes. I can usually not resist the quintessential ‘Besan laddoos’, ‘Doda Burfi’, ‘Çhocolate burfi’, ‘Kalakand’, ‘Nariyal laddoos’…and the list is quite long, so I better pause here.

It’s customary to exchange sweets and sometimes presents with friends and family, and this way, you do get to taste a whole variety of sweets, even though you don’t make or buy all of them. I can go on about my love for sweets, a trait acquired with love from my Dad 🙂 but am taking a step back and wondering if you have given any thought to colour palettes and colour combinations while serving ‘mithai’?

Here are some colour palettes you can keep in mind. Not too complicated, isn’t it?

1. Doda Burfi/ Chocolate Barfi

4. Last, but certainly not the least – my favourite Kalakand!

What are your favourite Diwali mithais? And how do you like to serve them? Do inspire us!

Here’s wishing a very Happy and Safe Diwali to you!
