Kamala Sweets

Kamala has been spreading joy to patrons with its amazing Bengali treats since 1984. We recommend the Kacha Golla, Mishti Doi, Radhaballavi {stuffed puri}, Aloo Dum, and Sita Bhog {sweetened cottage cheese noodles}. During winter, the nolen gur makes a dramatic entrance with shondesh, rosogollas and moa, so don’t miss out.

Bengali Sweet House

bengali1Established in 1937, Bhimsain’s Bengali Sweet House is an iconic landmark near Mandi House. In the evenings, you can see patrons eating Chhole Bhature, Aloo Tikki and Gol Gappe, with their famous lassi and kesar badam milk. We highly recommend the ras malai and gajar ka halwa during winter months.

Currently run by the fourth generation of Agarwals, Kaleva is our go-to option for every occasion. With different kinds of laddus, khoya sweets, Bengali sweets, and sohan papdi {choco ones too!}, as well as kaju mixture, mini samosas and kachoris galore, it isn’t hard to understand why we love this one.

A well-known name across Delhi, Evergreen has been serving up treats since 1963. Having grown from a three-person effort to a 125 dedicated working force, this is the best option for when you want sweets in bulk. While they do the usual Rosogulla, Rajbhog and Kesari Anguri Petha, they’re also a pretty great option for dry fruits and namkeen. They also do home delivery.

Ram Swaroop Halwai

3A place for all our kachori and halwa fantasies, Ram Swaroop also serves up delectable gulab jamuns. Go early during the day to avoid missing out on the freshest batch of sweets {and it’s always full so be prepared to hustle}. Khoya mithais, gujia, imarti, ghevar, pheni, petha and barfi steal the show, but the jalebis have stolen our hearts.

Kallan Sweets

kallanA legacy of 75 years that is still going strong, Kallan Sweets is one of those off-beat spots where the owner comes and sits at your table and tells you stories about the olden days. Known primarily for its sinful Shahi Tukda, you can also check out the kulfi, phirni and rabdi.
