Some Tips for My Lovely Readers:

  • Maintain a straightforward approach. A well-presented, delectable mithai will be far more appreciated than a bewildering selection of options.
  • If properly preserved, most mithai can be prepared a day or two ahead of time. Make the most of that time so you don’t have to scramble at the last minute.
  • Always keep some dried fruits and nuts on hand in your kitchen for emergencies; with these on hand, you can whip up something wonderful on the spur of the moment.
  • Don’t be afraid to think beyond the box. You don’t have to stick to the same flavor combinations all of the time. Do some study to see what works well with what and try something new with your mithai. Desserts with varied mixes of fruits and nuts provide an additional zest.
  • It’s true that a little goes a long way. Maintain minimal portion sizes; individuals may always assist themselves to more if they want.

I hope, you found the article useful! Enjoy Christmas! Have fun!
