Mishti or Sweet is every Bengali’s weakness. Sweet is compulsory in our every occasion. We love to have sweet when we are celebrating something. Recently the biggest festival of Kolkata – DURGA PUJO was celebrated. It is a ritual to have sweets on the eve of Dashmi – final day of Durga pujo . I posted a sweet recipe previously in my blog. Today I am sharing another sweet recipe which I cooked recently.
Do check the recipe of #kachagolla which I posted before
