Indian sweets, known as mithai, are a type of confectionery. Many are made with sugar, milk and condensed milk, and cooked by frying. The bases of the sweets and other ingredients vary by region. In the Eastern part of India, for example, milk is a staple, and most sweets from this region are based on milk products.

Types of Indian Sweets:

Barfi: a sweet made of dried milk with ground cashews or pistachios. It is customary to attach a thin layer of edible silver foil as decoration.

Chena Murki:  a sweet made from milk and sugar available in Indian province of Orissa. The milk is boiled for a long time and condensed. Sugar is added and the sweet is given a round shape. It is also known by many Bangladeshi and Guyanese people as pera.

Chikki: a sweet made out of peanuts and molasses

Gulab jamun: an Indian dessert made out of fried milk balls soaked in sweet syrup.

Jalebi: is made by deep-frying flour in a circular (coil-like) texture and then dipping in sugar syrup.

Kulfi: Indian ice-cream, where the sweetened milk/cream is frozen in small metal cans to be served frozen. Usually it has a milky appearance, but additional colors may be applied for display.

Kheer: is a pudding, usually made from rice and milk. Also known as Payas

Laddu: is made of flour and other ingredients formed into balls that are dipped in sugar syrup. The popularity of Laddu is due to its ease of preparation.

Malpoa: is one of the most ancient home made sweets of India. It is a form of pancake (made of what or rice flour) deep fried and sugar syrup.

Pathishapta: is a Bengali dessert. The final dish is a rolled pancake that is stuffed with a filling often made of coconut, milk, cream, and jaggery from the date palm.
