There are some people who love sweets like me, some who do not like and yet some who have a selective list of sweets which they relish. My daughter falls into this selective list category and one of the sweets in that preferred list is Suryakala. This is my post for Blogging Marathon #24 under the theme DESSERTS. Though it is time consuming, it is very delicious. So, worth all the effort
