Baileys Mithai – Indian sweets
This weekend many Hindu households have been cooking away for Diwali. By the end of it, houses are filled with buckets of sweet and savoury goodies to be shared by the family. This year is most people around the world are going to be celebrating Diwali differently #covid. Every family celebrates the Diwali season in their unique way. My uncles like to have a little boozy celebration and these Baileys Mithai balls (Indian sweets) are made for them. I added a twist to my regular mithai recipe and they turned out really good!
Milk powder – full fat preferably to get the rich mithai (Indian sweets) taste.
Sugar – I used regular granulated.
Saffron – A few strands to bring out the flavour but not to overpower the Baileys taste.
Ghee – just enough for the silky glow.
Baileys – go easy on this, you don’t want to go too heavy and add too much.
Chocolate drizzle – I just melted cooking chocolate and added a dash of baileys to it, this will make the balls even more special in taste.
Sprinkles – Optional to do this, adds a prettier look to the balls.
