Doesn’t the Gur Bonanza look beautiful? The pomegranate on top adds that slight crunch, and a fruity taste to the sweet. Rs 40 per piece @Batai Mistanna Bhandar (Howrah).

Whenever we think of sweets, there is probably nothing better than Bengali mishti to gorge on. So, when City Centre Salt Lake and New Town hosted their Sweets of Bengal, in association with t2 from November 26 to 28, we had to check it out. Kheer Malai, Pantua, Anando Naru, Madhu Malancha, Badam Cheet, Makha Sandesh, Butterscotch Sandesh... the list was endless to satisfy the craving. Some of the participants were Laal Misti Kheer Doi (Nabadwip), Felu Modak (Rishra), Dwarik Grand Sons, Nepal Sweets among others. Stalls like Mitra Cafe and Poush Parban were also present with their savoury treats.

“I am having Joynagar’r moa (from Batai Mistanna Bhandar), which is our Bengal’s speciality. Delicious and sweet! I am having fun at this mishti mela as you can see. We are from Bengal, and as Bengalis, we love mishti. More people should come for this festival,” said Arpita Das.

“We had rabri... nice, creamy, and mildly sweet. I don’t like too much sweet, so it was a mild sweet dish which I appreciated,” said Gopa Kar.
