Talk of Meethi Eid and a delectable world of desserts start conjuring up in our mind. Traditional desserts rest on recipes that date back to centuries and are handed down to generations with utter care and precision. Some of the most iconic recipes involve culinary skill, a certain degree of intuitive cooking and meticulousness to pull off a spellbinding preparation in every single batch that is prepared. Cut to the 21st century and none on us really have the time or patience to practice the utter discipline of a traditional recipe. We then begin to miss our grandma who used to take great joy in raking up some of the most complex preparations with absolute ease.
