Spread love and cheer with these Deepavali mithai on November 4.

Festive goodies, from mooncakes for the Mid-Autumn Festival to log cakes for Christmas, are getting more newfangled and fancy every year. For the upcoming Deepavali celebrations, some Indian restaurants in Singapore are putting a twist on the traditional Indian sweets (called mithai), too.

Traditional flavours are milk- and nut-based, and the sweets come in varieties such as burfi (milk-based sweets), ladoo (flour- and ghee-based balls) and jalebi (deep-fried flour batter drenched in syrup). But think mithai with a twist, with creative, modern flavours and ornate packaging.

Here are some places in Singapore to try out some fancy Deepavali mithai – all from the comfort and safety of your own home.
