Dried Fruit Mostarda is an Italian condiment made of dried or fresh fruits and mustard oil. I have used dried fruits and mustard oil to prepared this dish. Dried fruit mostarda can be had as a candy or can be had with bread toast. Also, it can be served as a topping on various Indian desserts like kheer or phirni.
