Meet Radhika!

Hello everyone! I am Radhika and I am a homemaker. Like many other Indians, I was introduced to cooking from a young age, observing and helping my mother out in the kitchen. As I was equipped with those skills from a young age, I am very particular about handmaking my Indian sweets at home today!

At home, I can control the ingredient proportions and pick quality ingredients! Different proportions of jaggery (raw sugar), ghee and milk results in different textures and flavours so making them at home allows me to tailor the sweets to my loved ones’ preferences! When I put all this love and care into my sweets and see the smiles on the faces of my friends and family, that sense of satisfaction is the sweetest thing of all!

More about Gulab Jamun and Carrot Halwa

Gulab Jamun is a deep-fried milk and flour ball that is soaked in a saffron-infused sugar syrup. Carrot Halwa, on the other hand, is a pudding made with grated carrots, milk, sugar, ghee and topped with nuts. These two sweets are only a facet of a very diverse range of traditional Indian sweets which includes payasam, kadabu, laduu and barfi. According to Radhika, many women in India are skilled in the preparation of such desserts as it is a common tradition to give sweets to one another during festivals and other social occasions.
