But there are a lot more sweets in Bengal that deserve mention. Come winter, homemade sweets become the hot favourite!
Patali gur or jaggery made out of date palms is the common ingredient or sweetener for these sweets. Not only does it add colour to the sweet, the flavour makes the sweet even more delicious.There are a variety of pithes- Pattishapta, Pulir pithe, Gokul pithe, sweet potato pithe, Chitoi pithe, and the list goes on. If you are fond of sweets, you must visit Kolkata during winter, not only are the shops full of yummy sweet meats, if you are lucky you will find some of the sweet shops selling pithes as well.
Just talking about is making my mouth water. My brunch today was Karaishootir kochuri, aloo dum with dhaniya patta chutney followed by Pattishapta.
What more can I ask for? Life is good.
