Leftover Mithai Recipe

Sweets are loved by all but after some special occasions or festivals we are left with plenty of them and don’t know what to do? For instance, recently there was the festival of Mahashivratri and my kitchen and refrigerator were filled with boxes of kaju katli, ladoo, peda etc. We indulged in them but might not relish after 2-3 days. We would be bored with eating them. Let’s work out some ways/recipes to give them a new look.

If you have leftover sweets and are disinterested in them, the following are some interesting ways to revamp those sweets.Leftover mithai recipe

  1. Ladoo Paratha

A very interesting paratha recipe to wind up the leftover ladoo! In fact, someday you might end up buying some ladoo to make these sweet, juicy and distinctive parathas. They are so delicious! Apart from ladoo, you may use this recipe to finish the leftover mawa barfi, milk barfi, kalakand which are very commonly consumed during Mahashivratri fast, etc.

  1. Coconut Kheer

No, it’s not that you can use the leftover sweets to make coconut kheer only. You can use them to make any kheer be it regular rice kheer or seviya kheer. I had used some leftover kaju katli to make coconut kheer and that is why I have referred this recipe. Milk barfi, coconut barfi, kaju katli, badam katli… any barfi would do justice to the kheer.

  1. Petha Pudding

In no time and absolutely effortlessly you can finish the leftover petha lying in your refrigerator by making petha pudding. The best part about this recipe is that it is a fasting dessert recipe.

Apart from the aforesaid, leftover barfi/peda, etc can be used to make kulfi, lassi, etc. A glass of chilled lassi topped with a crumbled peda or crumbled kesar barfi… yum!! Sweets such as kaju katli etc can be added to the gravies which are on the sweeter side such as kaju khoya, khoya matar, etc.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
