by Neal David Writer

Desserts complete our palate whether it's lunch or dinner time! But, what can make your meal more satisfying and appetizing ever is a dose of authentic Indian sweets! Heard about the famous Mysorepak? Or Kaju Barfi? Yes, these are certainly some of the insanely popular Indian sweets you can hear from any resident of the country. And gradually, their authenticity, the richness of taste and the power to melt hearts made them widely famous around countries in the world. Kaju Barfi, Gulab Jamun, Rabri? You name any; you can get it from any good old restaurant in the cities of USA! 

Let's not boast more about the popularity of Indian sweets because all of us actually know it. Let's just get straight to some of the chosen sweets that you must try once in your life.


Shaped intelligently and wickedly like a coil, Jalebis are what every foodie having sweet tooth crave for! Made with nothing complex ingredient but maida flour batter, it is very easy to prepare. The batter is then deep-fried making circular rings. It is then dipped in sugar syrup and allowed to soak. Served hot or cold, it is delicious either way!

Kaju Barfi

The diamond and glittery shape of Kaju Barfis says it all! That is how much unique it is as sweet and the professionalism needed to prepare. Made by skilled halwais and sold at shops, Kaju Barfis bring altogether the flavor of rich cashew nuts, sugar, milk, saffron, and ghee. To make it more perfect and unforgettable in terms of taste, some even add dry fruits like pistachios or almonds to it. A sweet for every festival or occasion, do not miss it out if you ever have a chance to have Indian sweets.

Gajar ka Halwa

No one is unaware of this awesome sweet prepared by Indian Grandmas! Filled with the goodness of finely grated carrot, milk, dry fruits like cashews and essential spices like cardamom, Gajar ka Halwa is the most favorite complementary dish with proper Indian staples like roti-sabji or dal-sabji. The milk is boiled and carrot is cooked and skimmed in it along with sugar, ghee, cardamom powder, and dry fruits. You believe it or not, it is heavenly in taste!

Gulab Jamun

If there is one sweet that is perfectly shaped, toned and filled with hearty stuff, then it’s Gulab Jamun.  Relished in every season, every festivity and traditional event, these jamuns will be your favorite too once you try it. Made of simple maida flour, mawa, some ghee, and sugar, the recipe is nothing sort of unique and hard to prepare. This sweet is utterly soft for the delicate stuffing inside. Once you have it, one is never enough!


A typical sweet with softness and mellowness, Sandesh can make your day. What makes it so special in taste is the delicious paneer or cottage cheese, sugar, and cardamom powder. The fresh paneer is used in moist form while preparing which imparts the softness to the Sandesh. Besides, anyone just cannot make it. That’s why it is a bit costly than other Indian sweets.

The only aim behind naming these sweets is to make the real lovers of desserts know about the heavenly taste and uniqueness of Indian sweets. So, if you are planning to complete your wishlist for different varieties of desserts, never forget to have these.
