Desserts can be a huge temptation, especially if you have a sweet tooth and are trying to eat healthy. The simple workaround is to make your dessert healthy. Traditional Indian desserts can be made healthy by making small changes such as switching the refined sugar with jaggery or date syrup and using millets instead of refined flour.
