SWEET SURRENDER: If you plan to spend the weekend cosily wrapped up in a quilt, a sweet surprise will pass you by. Trying to take the sting out of the biting cold will be The Telegraph Nolen Gur-er Mishti Festival.
|Sinful delights from Nalin Chandra Das & Sons
So, brave the winter nip and get “monda mithai hari hari” (you don’t even need to wear special shoes or clap your hands for this!) at the two-day festival (January 12 and 13) at City Centre (Salt Lake).
Girish Chandra Dey & Nakur Chandra Nandy, Sen Mahasay, Nalin Chandra Das & Sons, Surjya Kumar Modak (Chandannagar), Balaram Mullick & Radharaman Mullick, Ganguram, Hindusthan Sweets and Gupta Brothers will plate up their special nolen-gurer creations to lure mishti-loving Calcuttans.
There will be Nolen Gurer Jalbhara, Nalini, Rajnandini, Monohara, Makhasandesh and Nolen Gur Scotch Sandesh, besides other familiar nolen gurer items.
“Compared to last year, the quality of nolen gur this year is better, so we expect the quality of sweets to be better. Gokul Pithe, Nolen Gurer Patishapta, Nolen Gurer Souffle, Abarkhabo and Nolen Gurer Truffle Sandesh will be sold at our stall,” said Sudip Mullick of Balaram Mullick & Radharaman Mullick.
And if you think this winter ain’t that cold, try the fare from Rollick and Fresh & Naturelle (Nolen Gurer Ice cream).
ub Solitaire members will gain a 20 per cent discount on showing their membership card at the stalls.
So, drop in for a mouthful of mishti between 11am and 8pm.
