It is no hidden secret that Indians take their desserts very seriously. Be it the humble Kheer or the delicious Gulab Jamun, Indians have been going ga ga over desserts for ages. No single occasion can go without indulging in decadent desserts for Indians. From rice to dry fruits and milk products, we Indians can make indulging desserts out of anything and everything.

I personally cannot imagine celebrating Diwali without indulging in Kaju Katli. The delectable sweet has a melt-in-mouth texture and delicious flavours.
