Indian Sweets’ Lover Award | Makar Sankranti Special!

Hey everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!

So, today is Uttarayan or Makar Sankranti, an Indian festival when you fly kites and eat sweets! Lohri is another festival celebrated and so is Pongal! And I thought what better day to do this tag than today! So, let’s get to it!

I was nominated by Prashansa @Reader’s Alcove, who is also the creator of this award. Give her a follow you guys!

Rules :

  • Thank the person/fellow Indian sweets’ lover who nominated you! (or whose blog you found out about this award through)
  • Answer the 5 Indian sweets-related questions and add one of your own!
  • Share some pictures of your all time favorite Indian sweets.
  • Nominate 5 or more bloggers who love Indian sweets and leave an open nomination for every Indian sweets’ lover around the world.

Let’s get to it!

  1. What are your top three favorite Indian sweets?
    Hmmm… It’s Kaju Katli, White peda and Gulab Jamun in no particular order. They are all yum!
  2. What’s an Indian sweet you haven’t tried yet but really want to ?
    Petha! I haven’t tried them, and they look yum, but I hate trying new foods, so well, until I overcome this weird phobia kinda thing of mine, it’ll have to wait.
  3. Name one sweet which is traditionally made in your city/state.
    Well, I am technically from Rajasthan- and well, Bundi Ka Laddoo is very famous there!
  4. Which kind of ladoo is your favorite?
    There are these Sooji ka White laddoos, which I really like, but the thing is, in our community, they are only eaten in funerals 😦
  5. Have you ever tried a chocolate flavored Indian sweet? If yes, name it.
    I don’t think I have- I do want to though!

Prashansa’s Question: Which Indian sweet makes you feel like you are in heaven?
Hmmm… my favourite ones!

My Question: Have you ever tried making an Indian sweet at home? Which one?

I’m genuinely disappointed that you haven’t tried chocolate Peda, chocolate barfi or chocolate Mysore pak ☹️Those are some chocolate-y Indian sweets 🤩 U’ll love them! (Or have you had any of it). So so loved all your answers. Oh, that moment when ur favourite sweet is meant for funerals 🤭 Lovely post! Thanks tonnes and tonnes for the nomination. I’m definitely giving this a try. So sweet of you to nominate me. Thanks again! 💖

  4. Hi!! So my blog is actually on Wix, not WordPress and you didn’t tag me but the last tag was you, so like I can write on my post that I got nominated by Riddhi and then your website link, right?
