The Big Fat Glossary of Indian Mithai & Sweets

South Asian confectionaries, known as <i>mithai</i> ("sweet"), are as crucial to the Indian diet as are dal and rice! From burfis to ladoos, many of these sweets are made with milk and sugar, and then fried, baked, or simmered to perfection! Served at weddings, dinners, and any type of get-together, <em>mithai </em>is a traditional and excellent way to show loved ones just how much they are cared for.
