Mini Kesar Pista and white chocolate tart

Mini Kesar Pista white chocolate tart! These tarts are easy, no bake, delicious and yet another perfect festive dessert for Diwali.

No fuss desserts are my favourite! They are perfect for festive season and parties. The crust of these tarts is a mixture of butter, biscuit and cardamom powder. Filling is also incredibly simple and made with cream, white chocolate, butter and soaked saffron.

This dessert is luscios, creamy and has perfect amount of saltiness to balance out the sweetness. Pretty mouthwatering right? Saffron lends this gorgeous colour and incredible aroma which keeps making you going for more. This dessert reminds of Indian sweets but it's actually a fusion dessert.

Remember the easy Paan and rose trifle jars I shared yesterday with you guys? It's moist, decadent and super easy to make. Well this dessert also is perfect for the festival of Diwali and comes together even more easily. It really is a no brainer and even if you are not into cooking so much, you can create this moreish fusion dessert in like no time. You can make it like 2-3 days in advance and refrigerate.

This dessert is inspired by my No bake chocolate tart which is a must try recipe if you haven't till now! Its a rich dark chocolate dessert which has creamy filling and salty biscuit crust. Here in this white chocolate tart, I have infused white chocolate with saffron and pista to make these cute little and beautiful tarts.
