The recipe for this delicious fruitcake comes from my friend, Mahendri Raidoo, formerly from Durban, South African now living in the USA. Both she and her husband are psychiatrists.
Mahendri is blessed with talents in many areas of her life, including classical singing, dancing and of course, cooking. Her delicious fruitcake is very popular and enjoyed by all. For another delicious Indian dessert recipe by Mahendri check Delicious Channa Magaj

Despite long work days, the Raidoo's cook their own meals and often entertain family and friends. Their children, Shandini and Renugan will graduate from college this summer. The family have a lot to celebrate as Shandini will begin her medical residency in Cleveland, Ohio, later in the summer.
Renugan will graduate with a bachelors degree in chemistry and anthropology. He also has the honor of being a Rhodes Scholars for 2011. He begins his studies at Oxford, England in the fall. After getting his degree at Oxford, Renugan plans to get both an M.D. and Ph.D. in chemistry, with the ultimate goal being to help those in third world countries deal with complex medical issues. His simplicity and his achievements are marvelous and we are all very proud of him.
