This book looks tasty from page 1. I wanted to go through this book to ask my wife to make some delicacies. We both have a sweet tooth. Looks a little ambitious at the start, but a detailed explanation looks really helpful. We are yet to try a recipe from here, but we are going to try it very soon. I additionally liked the tips given at the end of the page. They definitely help you tweak things as per your requirement. A must-have book for the foodies.
What I liked: It looks good. Mouthing watering pictures. Very simple and precise descriptions
In a Nutshell: A super delicious read

I love how Rachel Goenka has jazzed up and transformed the humble Indian mithai into the sublime.
Adventures with Mithai has 50 recipes divided into 5 sections- desserts, cheesecakes & cakes, truffles, macarons, and ice creams & sorbets; with full length photographs for each recipe to show you how the finished product is supposed to look. It includes dishes you’ve probably never heard of, or imagined, before like the masala chai crème brûlée, kala khatta sorbet, thandai macarons, filter coffee truffles, gajar ka halwa cake, etc. These don’t just sound unique and exciting but look incredible as well; kudos to the photographer and the entire team!
The instructions are clear and easy to follow while the ingredients used in most of the recipes are a cinch to find in any store. Nothing in this book seemed overly complicated and I’m sure not only baking pros but beginners too can make good use of it. I can’t wait to try all these out.
Being an Indian everyone of us would have an appetite for desserts no matter how much we have filled our stomach with and when these traditional desserts get a modern touch to it, its one hell of a combination of magic and tradition! Every recipe in the book has eye-pleasing images and a very simple preparation procedure makes it even more practical to prepare! some of my favorites are saffron macrons, date & cardamom truffles, malai chop sandwich, and lastly mothichoor laddo with cardamom mousse! and now I cant wait to try these at home
