How do I develop my love for Indian sweet treats? Well, when I was little and my family resided at Kg. Malaysia Raya, our neighbor was a ‘mamak’ nenek. She used to prepare all varieties of sweet treats for big orders. So I would always be a busybody and kept the nenek accompanied. So I got to taste all of it! Hence I became a sweet tooth person.
I remembered during my college days, I used to go to this Pak Arab’s supermarket just to have my fix of laddu or gulab jamun. Yum yum! I would bought a box (normally 6 pieces) each and kept it in the freezer for weeks.
Laddu, petisa, mysore pak, palkova, barfi, motichoor laddu, gulab jamun, kaju katli, and halva. Just to name a few of the sweet treats of Indian.
