Indian Desserts, Indian Desserts and Sweet Recipes

Indian Desserts fulfil everybody’s craving for a sweet-something in the most creative and delightful ways. While Indian desserts and sweets are predominantly served at the end of a meal, some Indian cultures believe in serving Indian sweet at the beginning, while some world cultures don’t have the concept of a dessert at all, and others like to top off with light fruits instead of rich sweets.

In any case, who can resist pampering themselves with a dessert? So, always pay attention to this course of the meal. Fortunately, this is not a tough challenge because as far as desserts go, we have just too much to choose from!

The Almond Barfi made with loads of almonds is super healthy, and gives you a good shot of protein! You can even make barfis in the microwave oven and you will be amazed by how easy and quick it is!

Indian Desserts , Chenna and Paneer Recipes

RasgullaRasgulla

Paneer is a handy ingredient in the preparation of sweets as well. Paneer and cheena are made by curdling milk and the only difference between them is paneer is drained to lose all the moisture and form a block. Though it can be used to make quick and easy indian desserts especially Bengali sweets like the Bengali Rasgulla or Saffron Chenna Pie. Paneer imparts not just softness but a very interesting, crumbly mouth-feel, which lands quite richly on the palate.
