Sweet Chronicles – A Book Dedicated To Indian Sweets

Sweet Chronicles – A Book Dedicated to Indian Sweets Industry and The authors

Indian sweets, or “mithai,” form an integral part of India’s culinary heritage. No celebration in India or religious feast is complete in  India unless sweets or desserts are served to the guests or as  Bhog to the gods and goddesses in India.  Indian Sweets are known for their rich flavors and cultural significance. Countless varieties of sweets are made in India, either milk-based or flour-based treats. Ingredients like milk, ghee, sugar, and spices create diverse textures and tastes. Each part of this nation is known for its unique sweets with unique specialties, reflecting local traditions. Sweets symbolize joy, hospitality, and the essence of Indian festivities, making them a beloved indulgence for all occasions.


One fine morning, a thought came to my mind:  why not dig deep to find the history of Indian sweets and help it reach people who are still not aware of it, thus how the “Sweet Chronicles: A Journey through the History of Indian Sweets” anthology was born.  19 authors took the oath to make in-depth research on their specific preferred sweet and present a masterpiece to include in this anthology – an initiative by indiacafe24.com.

I take immense pride in introducing my co-authors of this book and their experiences being a part of this book:
