There are very few desserts that i actually love and this wonderful piece of ‘sondesh’ from Kolkata covered with dark chocolate literally lifted my spirits. This marvellous piece of heaven is something very few people don’t know of. I have eaten sondesh which is a delicacy of Kolkata sitting here in Mumbai and never once visiting Kolkata. I have had numerous friends from West Bengal but none actually introduced me to the sweet. I don’t know where i learnt of ‘sondesh’ but i definitely know that it is a milk sweet. Eating this covered with dark chocolate and deceptively looking like a home made chocolate is one of the best ‘sweet’ memories i have.
And getting this on a particularly shitty work day…that is like experiencing sunshine after the rain!
