“Stressed” when spelled backwards reads “desserts”. So why stop yourself from indulging in something sweet and nice whenever you feel like? Of course, over consumption of your favourite pastries and confectioneries can make you fat and unhealthy. But hey, it is summers. It is 48° C outside. You have the right to treat yourself!
Here are five desserts we feel will certainly please your taste buds:
Soft and spongy cottage cheese balls drowned in rich, sugary syrup this Bengali delicacy can never disappoint the dessert-lover in you. This sweet dish is best served when chilled and it literally instills a feeling of calmness when consumed.
2. Jamun Ice Cream:
Summers and ice cream go hand-in-hand. And when ice cream is mixed with an exotic summer fruit such as “jamun”, the end result is even better! The best quality about this ice cream is that it comprises less sugar and is not heavy. Have just a little scoop of it post meal and your heart will be content.
3. Fruit Sorbet:
If you are not a big fan of ice creams, then sorbets are perfect for you. Not only are they refreshing but also fat-free. And they also come in many flavours. Mango, litchi, strawberry, black currant – you name it! It’s like a refined form of “golas”.
