Dorbesh is nothing but Boondi Laddu. But this Dorbesh is little different from the regular Non-bengali boondi laddu. Dorbesh is made with colorful boondies, and looks very tempting. Dorbesh taste little bit different from regular laddu. This Bengali Boondi Laddu is made with boondi, cashew, raisins and khoya kheer or mawa. We have to mix all the ingredients together and then shape them into Laddus.
Chandrapuli is an authentic Bengali sweet. This sweet is made with 'Chaana/Cottage Cheese, Khova/Mawa/Milk Solid, Scraped Coconut & sugar Or Jaggery'. This sweet is must for Durga Pujo(Bengalis' Biggest Festival). Chandrapuli is little sweeter than the other Bengali Sweets. As coconut, mawa is added with chhana, that makes this sweet, sweeter. But so what, we Bongs love sweets, right! So let's see how to make 'Chandrapuli'.
These sweets are quite time consuming. And in recent days you can get every authentic Bengali sweets in the nearby Sweet shops. But who stays outside Bengal, what about them. I'm sure they still miss those Authentic Bengali sweets. So I prepare these 'Narkel Er Takti' for them, who badly miss them and want to make at home. This recipe is little easier than the authentic recipe. Here is the recipe of 'Narkel Er Takti/Chapa.
Nolen Gurer Rosogolla
<p>So finally winter is here. A for a bong winter means 'Nolen Gur', 'pithe puli', gurer payesh', 'Gurer sondesh/rosogolla'. But in outside of West Bengal these treats are always out fo your reach. Though you can get Bengali Sweets in other states of India, but Gur or Date palm jaggery is may be your dream. In Hyderabad, Gangura, the famous bengali sweet shop of Kolkata brings you good Winter sweets, but it's very far from our house. </p>
