I just ate the last piece of Haldiram’s Pista Burfee. We expected it to last a few days but nope, we just gobbled up all 16 pieces in less than 24 hours. They don’t sell this here in Seychelles so I will not have this again for quite a while. Indian sweets are simply amazing and I really don’t know why there isn’t much of it here. Some places do sell instant Indian sweet mix like Gulab Jamun or Kalakand but it’s not quite the same as the fresh ones.
The first time I had quality Indian sweets was in Shanghai. It was my Mauritian room mate who shared a very small piece of laddoo with me. Her country-mates of Indian origin had a party and they made some. So she was kind enough to save me a piece. It was absolutely delicious. Since then, my Indian friends have been treating me to these delicacies.
If I lived in India, I’d probably be a very fat person. I hear we can buy these on the streets. From what I’m told, they’re not that cheap. Especially not as cheap as traditional sweets from Philippines such as polvoron and even chocnut. We had plain burfee last time, and so far that’s my favourite. Its texture is out of this world; very creamy. If you haven’t tried these yet, it’s definitely something you should do especially if you’re not allergic to any of its ingredients or not lactose intolerant. Haha.
