Sweet cravings

I’m so sick of eating my son’s favorite chocolate cake (that we have to bake every week) that I’ve been craving for some traditional sweets. The syrupy, melt-in-the mouth ‘gulab jamans’ that envelop you with their sweetness, the creamy milky ‘kheer’ that you can’t have enough of, the crumbling rich sweetness of ‘burfi’ and the crispy pretzel shaped ‘jalebi’ dripping with sweet syrup.

Yes that would do very well.

They need to make one of those sweet shops that sell all of the above somewhere near my house. I would be their most loyal customer, in fact if they were on Four square I would be the undisputed Mayor.

What makes it worse is that my fridge is full of chocolates and I’m still craving for sweets. You might be wondering why I don’t just open the fridge and indulge myself. That’s because chocolates are boring. They are not syrupy so your fingers get all gooey with sweetness. They don’t come in different colors (yes I know about the M&Ms but those are for babies) like the dark maroon ‘gulab jamun’, the orange ‘jalebi’, the white ‘kheer’ and the green pistachio ‘burfi’. Chocolate doesn’t have different textures and it’s always at one temperature not warm like the ‘gulab jaman’ and cold like ‘kheer’. It’s just plain boring.

(With apologies to my husband who works in a chocolate company and brings home a packet of assorted chocolates every Thursday.)

  6. I love the fact that because of your nationality and culture, your perspective on food is so much different – and I love hearing about it. Yes, I agree, chocolate can be sooo boring (okay, millions may disagree) but then again, I’m not a huge fan of it anyhow. I’m not a true “sweets” person, preferring salty – but if I’m going to indulge in a sweet – I’d like it to be morsel sized and have different qualities and textures and tastes.

    How about pointing us – okay me – in the right direction for some deliciously devilishly great looking images of the delights you named? Strictly for “drooling purposes” only – okay – I admit – having a syrupy craving at the moment – I swear if the store was closer I’d be running for some Baklava.
