Sweets in Temple
As a tradition, Indian temples believe in the concept of purity. There is a belief in first offering prasad to the Gods and then to everyone else. Only pure food is offered to the Gods. Thus Indian mithai which has ghee, sugar, and milk as its primary ingredients is often the chosen one. Since all the things that go into making sweets are pure thus they are considered safe for offering to Gods in temples.
