While we all seek to explore international desserts once in a while, the charm of our own traditional Indian mithai is boundless. All said and done, our palates are blindly in love with the spicy, rich magic of our mithais. When a wedding or festival is in sight, the first thing that the host starts planning is the spread of mithais. The best part is that Indian culture is so varied that there is no dearth of variety in our own repertoire. There are delights from across the country like the Rasgulla , Malai Peda , Kopra Pak , and so on.

Mouth-watering Atta Sheera, with a fabulous colour, texture and flavour, ready in just five minutes! If you are wondering how that magic is possible, well, just trust your microwave to do it for you
