A Goan sweet for Christmas - Cashew and sugar moulded into fruit shapes!
Marzipan is made using cashew and sugar in Goa. It's made all over the world but elsewhere it's made with almonds & sugar. You get these cloyingly sweet (for my taste anyway!) Marzipans during Christmas time in Goa and in the bakeries of Bandra. In my opinion, these sweet & festive morsels taste better with the cashew powder than the almond powder.
