Festivals are an integral part of Indian culture. A number of festivals are celebrated across the country. Indispensable during festivities are sweets or mithai. A lot of sweets are prepared and indulged in during the festive times. Further, a number of mithai dabbas are received as gifts from friends and relatives, etc.
At times the desserts received are not of our choice. Further, we might even get bored with the sweets prepared by us. There are many interesting ways to re-vamp the leftover mithai.
Recently I had posted the recipe for the cherry on churma on the blog. This is a very versatile recipe. Although I have prepared it using Rajasthani churma, it can be adapted to use the left-over ladoo, etc.
Often cakes are baked on festivals. If there is some leftover cake you can make cake pops with it. Cake pops are loved by the kids and are a great way to use the leftover cake. Well, if you are not in the mood to make cake pops, you can use the leftover cake to make a cake milkshake. Likewise, if there are some left-over cookies you can make chocolate-dipped cookies using those.
Fresh coconut can be used to make coconut chutney as well as coconut kheer.
Further, there are a number of more recipes which can be used to reconstruct the leftover sweets/mithai:
