Not just the taste but also its presentation, techniques, platting style, etc add to this concept of ‘fusion mithais’, says Bharti Sanghi, Founder, Life Artisanal Food.”Nowadays people tend to make things customized, even sweets. With the advancement and customization, fusion sweets have become popular and the need of the hour,” she says.

Adding: “Though we consider such fusion sweets to be modern still they are desi inside i.e., with the same methods and traditions of preparing which has been followed for centuries. All that has changed in the name of modernization is the name of the dish, it’s detailing, way of presenting, packaging, and decoration which makes it more appealing and attractive.”

Some of these recipes are more than 100 years old. Say the ‘halwa’: the method of presenting and adding an alternative layer of pumpkin and pineapple and make it with lots of khoya, ghee, and of course sugar and dried fruits define a new method of having halwa today.
