The first thing that hits home is the pleasing aroma of sweets as you open the doors to a small little shop located smack in the centre of the city's bustling MG Road. KC Das is an iconic joint that has satiated the sweet tooth of much of the city’s populace (especially the large Bengali presence here).
We all know KC Das as the go-to-place for Bengali sweets, namely the milky chum chum and the fluffy white wonders, the rosogullas. What we also want to shed some light on is KC Das’ pocket-friendly savoury Bengali specials — luchis ( Bengali version of puffed puris) with mishti cholar dal (sweet Bengal gram curry) and dum aloo (potato curry). Did we tell you that their mishti doi (sweet curd) is another house favourite? Sweetened fermented curd made from milk and jaggery, this is healthy and the ideal catalyst to a good day’s (or deed’s) start. Just so good that once it’s over, you’ll mish it (see what I did there).
For festive sweet treats, they freshly prepare roshogullas, sweetened watery balls made from semolina flour and chenna (cheese curds). We highly recommend you to take them home, have them refrigerated and eat them chilled. For some dry yet equally sweet offerings, try their sondesh made from chenna, milk and sugar. A visit here is highly recommended and we assure you’ll be high on sugar and satisfaction. FYI -- It is believed that KC Das is the original founder of the Roshogullas. The seating is minimal and almost negligible. This is one place where you could hop in for a sweet or light eat, stand by the counters or tables, eat and go about your day. We urge you to avoid crowding and due to COVID-19, they might not have dine-in facilities.
