Gulab Jamun, Rasogulla, Gajarela, Kulfi, Rasmalaiii. Aaaaah!
The most delightful names for any sweet lover.
Approximately 51% of the total population of India is believed to have an insatiable Sweet Tooth. Well, I guess 10-15% of them are Punjabis.
Some people are born with Sweet Tooth and then some are born Punjabis. Sweets are the weakness of almost every person in North India. Considering Dessert the favorite part of the meal we North Indians love all possible sweets, From Waffles, Brownies, Puddings to Barfi, Kheer, Halwa.
There is this unconditional and unexplainable love about sweet things only a sweet lover will understand.
Well the time is changing and so are the choices. With discovery of new dishes like Puddings and pies, Sundaes and Choco Fudge taste buds of younger generation are changing.
