Sweet dishes are an integral part of Indian culture. It is famously said when we have guests home “Moonh meetha to karte jaayiye” which implies how can one leave your home without having anything sweet. Any special occasion or event is incomplete without delicious desserts in the menu. Happiness over a good news or someone’s achievement is also shared by distributing sweets.
