Fruits basket|fruits shaped kaju katli

Who is gonna join me for some fruit picking?..Well I have some fall and winter fruits for you in my basket today.Strawberries,apples,pumpkins you name it and  I have it .Hahhah let us end the drama and come to reality.Festivals and sweets are twined so strongly that when we speak of festivals automatically sweets steal the topic.

Though fusion deserts are the talk of the town but for festivals mostly Desi sweets are preferred. Kaju katli tops the list when it comes to festive shopping for sweets.For my friends who dont know what kaju katli is.kaju katli is a traditional cashew fudge.My kids prefer only kaju katli sweets when it comes to store brought ones.When ever we are at the local shop they pack all the varieties and shapes available as if there is no tomorrow.These cute little fruits are packed with the flavours of kaju jatli but in a a brand new avatar.
