2) A traditional Indians dessert, altered to appeal to the Western palate.
3) Any treat that would be particularly good after a great Indian meal, including beverages, candies, etc.
The rules: Make a dessert with an Indian twist and email toastpoint@gmail.com by Friday, August 25. Roundup with pictures by the end of the month.
