Kesariya Gulab Makhan Board — with fresh fruits, rose petals, almonds, and a saffron-rose-kewra infused honey, this butter board is an ode to the classic Indian makhan mithai that I loved as a kid. Sweet peaches and blueberries paired with the creamy butter and floral honey are a combo that I could only dream of!
If you’re anything like me, one of the first things that came to our mind with this new butter board trend was Makhan Mithai. A popular Indian mithai with nuts and fruits in a butter base, it’s the perfect inspo! I like to serve this with pav for the most authentic flavor but even crackers or other bread would be great in a pinch!

Sweet peaches and blueberries paired with the creamy butter and floral honey are a combo that one could only dream of!
- 4 oz butter , softened (approx. 120 gm)
- 1/2 cup mixed fruits , chopped in small pieces

Place a banana leaf or parchment paper on a board of your choice. Spread a thin layer of softened butter over the leaf.
Spread mixed fruits over the butter. I used peaches, blueberries, strawberries, grapes and pomegranate.
Then spread nuts and milk masala powder on top.
In a small bowl, mix together honey and saffron. Warm it for 10 seconds in a microwave to make it easy to drizzle. Then mix in rose and kewra essence.
Drizzle the infused honey over the butter board.
Top with golden sprinkles, edible flowers and apply edible gold foil.
