With Rakhi just round the corner (read, tomorrow), it is officially festive season in North India. It’s only time before we’ll start hoarding and stocking up on innumerable boxes of laddoos, barfis, pedas, and the works. But first, raksha bandhan. What if we told you that you don’t necessarily have to shell out massive amounts on multiple kilos of sweets and instead make them at home? Not only are homemade sweets way more economical, they are a lot more personal and special as well. So set your alarm for a little earlier tomorrow because you’ve some serious mithai-making to do!
