Sweets and Bengal go hand in hand! So many of the wonderful Indian sweets have their origin from Bengal. For those who are not aware, Bengal is a state in a the eastern part of India and well known for it’s rich culture, art and of course food! A lot of Bengali sweets use milk as the base. For example my favorite rasgulla, chum chum and many more. Sandesh is another popular Bengali sweet which is made with only 2 basic ingredients. Generally in Bengali Sweets they use sugar or jaggery. So instead of sugar or jaggery I used sweetener. Macros mentioned per piece.
