You haven’t lived if you have never tasted Indian sweets. That’s right, those are sweets.
And those ‘apples’ on the side are actually colored burfi. I’m not too sure what the silver ones are called, but the one on the left is shape of a con-shell and the other is a diamond cut burfi. It takes a lot of self discipline to photograph these patiently without gorging on them first (well I did eat a couple while I was shooting..)
