“Dessert is like a feel-good song and the best ones make you dance.”  – Edward Lee

A sweet treat always draws attention, whether sitting on a counter covered in chocolate or being photographed on social media. However, when we seek Indian sweets, a wide variety of endless flavors are available, along with nuts, fruits, and milk, to make us fall in love at first bite!

Here are a few of the sweet treats that people adore:

  • Gulab Jamun: Gulab jamun is the most popular dessert in India, is deliciously sweet, gooey, and impossible to resist! These fried spongy balls, syrup-soaked soft are created with a dough of flour, or condensed milk. They usually have rose and cardamon flavors, which is how they got their name, “rose berry,” in English.
  • Kulfi: During the Mughal Empire in the 16th century, the Indian subcontinent gave birth to the frozen dairy dish known as kulfi. Frequently, it is referred to as “classic Indian ice cream.” The classic Indian dessert known as kulfi is commonly offered for sale by kulfiwallahs or street sellers.
  • Paan Kulfi: A frozen milk-based delicacy called paan kulfi is flavored with paan and gulkand (rose jam) (betel leaves). The flavor of this kulfi is Meetha Paan. Traditional Indian ice cream, known as kulfi, is created with sweetened reduced milk.
  • Rasmalai: Ras malai is a dairy-friendly alternative to rasgulla, except the balls are taken out of the sugar syrup after cooking, flattened, and then dipped into sweet, creamy milk (malai) once they have cooled. Typically, the meal is topped with spices and nuts.
  • Saffron Kheer: The most well-known Indian dessert is Saffron Rice Kheer, rice pudding, which is made from rice, milk, nuts, and saffron. On special occasions, we only make “Kheer,” a simple and traditional Indian dessert. It is typically offered as the meal comes to a close.
  • Halwa: The most popular version of this traditional Indian dessert is gajar ki halwa (carrot halwa). It originated in the royal Mughal palaces and is incredibly well-liked in northern India during the winter. Grated carrots are the main component. It is prepared with sugar, milk, and a substantial amount of ghee.
  • Misti Doi: While it is prepared similarly to Rabri, this traditional Bengali treat lacks nuts and seasonings. The curd made from fermented milk is thickened to a creamy consistency and heavily sweetened with jaggery.

“Dessert is an opportunity to make something beautiful as well as delicious.”    

Roland Mesnier.

The perfect method to end a good meal would be with a dessert, which is a unique combination of sweetness with nuts or milk. Whether served together with a sweet dessert or eaten on their own, these are almost too good to save for the meal’s last course.
