Indulge in Indo-Western fusion sweets this Diwali

It's time to indulge in Indo-Western fusion sweets. Go beyond the good old motichoor laddoos and gulab jamuns and pick motichoor doughnuts and chocolates in shapes of fire crackers to live up the Diwali fever.

Motichoor Surprise from Dunkin' Donuts.

Outlets like Dunkin' Donuts, Choko la, Haagen-Dazs and Yogurberry are trying to cash in on the festive season to offer quirky delights to engage youth in trying Indian flavours of international sweets.

"This is an attempt to offer something topical and in tune with the country's culture," Dev Amritesh, COO, Dunkin' Donuts India, told IANS.

Doughnuts, the sweet rings of dough said to have originated in the US, are usually topped with chocolate and colourful sprinklers.

But US-based Dunkin' Donuts, which opened shop in India only earlier this year, has introduced motichoor surprise, kesar pista delight, petal jamun, nuts n stars and coconut burst for the Diwali season.

The petal jamun is a flower-shaped doughnut topped with mango-flavoured icing and a small gulab jamun in the middle, while the coconut burst has a juicy rasgulla in the middle.
