Desserts and Sweets (Mithai in Hindi means "sweet food") have always been an integral part of Indian cuisine. Many of them are made with fruits, nuts, spices, coconut and milk. At least once in your life you shoul try kheer and kulfi (Indian Ice Cream). Once you do, you will never forget their exotic, unique flavors. While they maybe little bit over sweet to western palates, a small portion of those exquisite desserts is a the perfect ending to every meal. It would be worth remembering that most Indian sweets are aid in digestion and are normally consumed after spicy meals. For Indians, any festival or ceremony is incomplete without sweets. Indian desserts are very often decorated with cardamom, raisins, almonds, pistachios, cashew nuts and fruits such as mangoes, guavas, pineapple, melon, cherries, oranges and bananas.
