Round up of My Mother's Kitchen - Indian Mithai Mela - part 1

After the success of My Mother's Kitchen - 1 (One Pot Meals), I had invited entries to one of the permanent fixtures in any Indian meal : Mithai / Indian sweets !! And boy, was I innindated with entries or what !!  60 + entries and counting !! Thank you for the overwhelming response, dearies :-) I truly appreciate your taking time off to respond.  
It has been wonderful to receive a cartload of Indian sweets from across the globe. Truly proves that the repertoire of Indian Sweets is expansive and popular..

I have divided this round up into two parts and shall be publishing them in tandem. I have included ALL the entries that were posted with a backlink to this announcement, which was mandatory. Do feel free to drop me a line at in case your entry has gone inadvertently gone awry . I shall update the same asap. In case you have sent your entries, but have not linked it back, please do so to be included in the 2nd part of this round up !

Thanks again, and hope you enjoy this one-stop shop Indian Mithai Mela for the festive season ahead :) 

Am sure you would also participate more enthusiastically in my ongoing event - Healthy Lunchbox Ideas - Carrots - ending 31st Aug. Do watch this space for some more exciting events coming your way !!
