This 60-Year-Old Iconic Sweets Store Is Every Bangalorean's Favourite
Kanti Sweets is an Indian sweets store and a favourite of most Bangaloreans. With more than 50 outlets across the city, head here for mouth-watering mithai and chaat.
What Makes It Awesome
Kanti Sweets made a humble beginning in 1957 with its first store at Kempegowda circle and has now grown to 54 branches. Popular for making Indian sweets, you’ll find mithai customised for festivals like Sankranthi, Holi and Raksha Bandhan. This sweet spot should be on your radar.
Specialities here are endless, however, we have picked our favourites so be sure to try these. The anjeer dry fruit burfi is made of figs, cashews and pistachios. The Kaju katlis here are legendary and truly live up to the hype. The ghee and khova sweets here include laddus, balushahi (made of maida, ghee and sugar) and doodh peda. Agra petha (made of ash gourd and sugar), cham cham and champakali (we’re drooling) are the popular Bengali sweets here.
In savoury snacks, the kachoris and ghewar will remind you of home. Fry Kaju masala, dry fruit mixture and mini samosas are popular namkeens. Try the veg puff, rusks, dal papadi, potato chips and chikkis -- they will make your belly happy. With all these options, you can eat to your heart’s content without burning a hole in your pocket.
Kanti Sweets has introduced low-sugar variants of traditional sweets like zero-sugar burfi, Kaju katli and moti choor.
