Gifting Traditional Indian Sweets Anywhere In India or USA


While Indians are great lovers of food, their second love without a doubt, is the love for ?traditional Indian sweets? and Indian beverages. India is a country of spices and sweets, and Indians, if they can afford, would like to have sweets with almost every meal. Each region has its own specialties. Basically, various regional recipes are only different forms of rice puddings, milk puddings, vegetables & fruits dipped in sweet syrup. Besides, there are a variety of milk-based Barfis and pastries. These are decorated with raisins, almonds, pistachio and the like. Various combinations of all the above delicacies offer hundreds of varieties of Indian traditional sweets to choose from. Most Indian sweets are made by boiling down milk to remove the moisture. It is called khoa. Adding butter, sugar and many other flavours, these are turned into barfi, malai, kheer, rasgulla and sandesh. In North India, lassi is the most popular drink may it be sweet or salty, made from yoghurt. The south and the west offer fresh coconut. Special and typical sweets that come from Bengal are Sandesh and Rasgullas, made in different ways from cottage Cheese. One notable exception of Bengali sweets is misti doi (sweetened yogurt), in terms of the fact that Bengali cuisine is the only Indian cuisine where plain yogurt is missing. Some very popular Indian sweets are :- Kheer, Halwa (pudding), Rasgulla (spongy cheese balls, dipped in sugar syrup), Gulabjamun, Rasmalai, Sandesh and many more. 'Kulfi', a creamy preparation of frozen milk and sugar, is the Indian version of ice-cream and is extremely popular with the old as well as the new generation.
