The festival of Raksha Bandhan is considered as one of the most significant festivals of India. If you just think about the name , Raksha Bandhan , it translates to ‘Protection Bond’ which signifies the promise to protect. This festival is celebrated on a big scale, like any other festival.
Like any other festival, this festival is also incomplete without sweets. The best and safest options is Haldirams, it is one of the most beloved food and sweet chain in India. They have their products available in the states as well, so if you are feeling homesick and want to feel like close to home- this is a great option. Some of the Haldiram sweets they offer are as follows-
1) Motichoor Ladoo- A household favourite, this sweet dish needs no introduction. Moreover, out of all the ladoos, motichoor is the one you can find easily, at every sweet shop. It is the most ideal dessert to prepare whatever the occasion might be and is mostly consumed as a prasad recipe.
2) Milk cake - Also known as milk fudge, it is made from solidified and sweetened milk. It is such a grainy dessert, soft and melts right in your mouth in the first bite. You can easily find milk cake on festivals such as Teej and Diwali. Nowadays, you can find several versions of milk cakes in several sweet shops and restaurants, that is mainly because of their popularity.
3) Rasmalai- This dish is originated from West Bengal. In which rosh means “juice”, and molar means “cream”. It consists of white, cream, or yellow coloured flattened balls of chhana soaked in malai (clotted cream) flavoured with cardamom. You can have this sweet dish, as you like- with ice cream, with sweet syrup etc. This dish is available at many sweet shops in the states, but can easily be found in Haldirams, USA.
4) Gulab Jamun - Does this need any introduction? In a festival like Rakhi, you can hardly go wrong with this. It mainly prepared with the help of milk solids, traditionally from khoya. I am sure you’ve had them at weddings, birthdays, etc, and now it is time you have it during this festival. What's great about Gulab jamun is that you can enjoy it by yourself or with ice cream, rabri, etc, whatever you like the most.
5) Plain burfee - Barfi, borfi or burfee, it is a dense milk based sweet that inherits from the Indian subcontinent. It is a type of mithai and the name is a derivative of the Persian word barf, which means snow. Some of the famous varieties of barfi include besan barfi, kaaju barfi, pista barfi, and sing barf.
In the end, these were some of the desserts that will make the occasion even more special.
