Top 5 Indian Desserts In Delhi-NCR For Your Diwali Sugar Fix

Indian Sweets Get A New Twist This Diwali

Indian Sweets Get A New Twist This Diwali

On Diwali, when Indians everywhere across the world will celebrate the festival of lights, boxes of sweets will be passed around. The festival, a world of rituals, also mean that these boxes, neatly stacked next to the Ganesh and Lakshmi idols, will be stuffed to the gills with Indian mithai. Despite gourmet chocolates and Western desserts worming their way into Diwali platters in recent times, the allure of the traditional sweetmeat still holds. So, even as flickering diyas, marigold garlands and sumptuous gifts mark your festivities this season, here is a round-up of Indian desserts that are a perfect end to traditional meals you will gorge on this Diwali.

Indian Accent

Warm Doda Barfi Treacle Tart

Price: Rs 625, plus taxes.

Indian Accent, a restaurant where the aroma of Indian kitchens is known to waft into and a place where the chef is celebrated for serving art on a plate, takes Indian desserts seriously. Doda barfi, the quintessential Diwali mithai has been given a culinary spin here. Chef Manish Mehrotra, who helms Indian Accent and has been credited with putting India on the global dining table, was reminded of the doda barfi when he ate a Sainsbury’s treacle tart for the first time. It was also when he was inspired to create the doda barfi treacle tart. Although wary at first, IndianAccent patrons have been smitten by the innovative take on the traditional Diwali dessert for a long time.

Gil-E-Firdaus (bottle gourd pudding) 

Price:  Rs 300, plus taxes

Traditional desserts have been re-imagined with a twist at Kheer, the Indian cuisine restaurant at Roseate House. In a bracingly original interpretation of the kheer, the restaurant is dishing up Gil - e - Firdaus, a creamy pudding made from grated bottle gourd. This dish is packed with nutrition from milk and bottle gourd and comes with additional flavours of saffron and cardamom.

An Indian theme surfaces in the dessert list which features culinary compositions such as Pearls gulab jamun tart with vanilla ice cream and fig and passion fruit shrikhand. While Pearls gulab jamun tart with vanilla ice cream creates textural contrast for diners with a crisp flaky tart base and pillowy gulab jamun, the fig and passion fruit shrikhand has hung curd jazzed up with sweet and tart flavours of fig and passion fruit.
