Here are four baskets of unusual desserts and chocolates for the holiday season
You don’t need a reason to offer chocolates or desserts. Even though the New Year celebrations are far behind us, the first festival on the Indian calendar is this Friday. Called Sankranti or Pongal in southern India and Lohri in the north, the harvest festival is reason enough to gift your loved ones something special. In addition to the traditional yellu-bella (sesame and jaggery) and gajak sweets, we tell you to be ultra-luxurious with our selection of five brands of chocolate and desserts that offer something unique.
