It’s Diwali time, so I’ve got a ziplock of lovely Diwali sweets (laddoos) made by my friend’s husband (thanks Srini!). They’re very sweet, crunchy, and taste of ground nuts and cardamom. Mmmmmmmmmm….. In my ideal universe, all sweets would contain cardamom. I can walk past the bowl of Halloween candy without a pang–“nope, nothing with cardamom”–knowing I have a stash of laddoos instead.
