Sweets, savouries and more at Bhikaram Chandmal
THEY may be famous for their bhujias and bhakarwadis, but when they debuted in Chennai three months ago, Bhikharam Chandmal had a second objective too (besides popularising their savouries) — to bring to the city authentic taste of Bengali and Rajasthani sweets. Lokesh, franchise owner of the outlet in Ethiraj Salai and a resident of the city, agrees that locally-made sweets here are expensive and high on sugar. “We wanted to bring a change in that aspect by preparing our sweets in the most authentic way,” he says.
Their sweet section majorly consists of kaju items like barfi, gujia, kalash, paan, bake biscuits, chocolate ball and kaju sandwiches. The rosogollas were delectable, while other items like choco mawa rolls, dil kushal, Rajasthani pedas, Jodhpuri ladoos and moti paks made up a our grand sweet spread. From the local platter, there is also a Mysore pak to try. But if you are a Rajasthani, you wouldn’t want to miss the kachoris, while Bengalis must wait a while until mishti doi makes its debut here. Excited already? We are!
