I love it, the picture makes me want to eat them right away. In Karachi, on the 22nd of Rajab, people invite their neighbors to their house early in the morning & serve these delicious Meethi Tikiyan with Kheer & other yummy stuff. As a kid I loved going from house to house for these treats. In USA, none/very few people practice this religiuos tradition. Thank you for the recipe.
