Festive goodies, from mooncakes for the Mid-Autumn Festival to logcakes for Christmas, are getting more newfangled and fancy every year.
For the upcoming Deepavali celebrations, some Indian restaurants in Singapore are putting a twist on the traditional Indian sweets (called mithai), too.
Traditional flavours are milk- and nut-based, and the sweets come in varieties such as burfi (milk-based sweets), ladoo (flour- and gheebased balls) and jalebi (deep-fried flour batter drenched in syrup). But think mithai with a twist, with creative, modern flavours and ornate packaging.
Here are 4 places in Singapore to try out some fancy mithai.
