Meetha aapko kya chaahiye?


Explanation:
The generic term for sweets/desserts would be "meetha". If you use "mithai" then it becomes more specific and can perhaps exclude some items. Couldn't help noticing - Your password is appropriate to this translation, isn't it?

Aaplo kaunsi mithaian chaheye?


Explanation:
This answer is in the every day Hindi. In the chaste Hindi, it will be "Aapko kaunse mishthan chaheye?". The question has made it clear that the reference is to sweet meats as a food group. However, in the West, the sweet meats of Indian kind are not used. Instead, the hard boiled sugars,i.e., candies, etc. are used. In Hindi, they will be "golian" in place of "mithaian". Of course sweets like cake, chocolates will be named as such as there are no Hindi equivalents.


    No references for a simple sentence like this.
