If you're looking for delicious desserts to serve at Christmas, you'll be glad to know that there are a lot of options. It's time to give in to your sweet tooth and chomp down on a variety of flavours with gusto. This list of traditional Indian Christmas treats is sure to make your stomach growl, and it also tells you where you can try them for yourself.
This sweet dish, which comes from Portugal and is also called "bibik," is by far the most popular Christmas treat in Goa. Bebinca is known as the "Queen of Goan Desserts" because of this, which is a very fitting name. Some urban legends say that Bebinca was invented by Portuguese nuns in the 17th century. But what really sets them apart is their commitment to baking without wasting anything.
If the Goan Bolinhas were not on the Christmas plate, it would be missing something very special. Bolinas are cookies that taste like cakes because they are made with coconut and semolina and have cardamom in them. When they come out of the oven, they have a texture of crispy as well as chewy. When they have cooled, their texture changes into a cloud of coconut and semolina that melts in your mouth like a cloud of butter, with the lovely flavour of cardamom whispering in the background. When you take a bite of this delicious cookie, the coconut flavour will explode as the cookie crumbles and dissolves on your tongue.
Guava Cheese is known as one of the best-tasting and most traditional Indian Christmas desserts. It is only made around the holidays. This is another type of food that comes from a number of different cultures. It may be traced back to Portuguese colonialists. Every bite of guava gives you a mouthful that is both chewy and soft. East Indians and Goans usually make this guava dessert around the holidays in India.
Rose Cookies are the most famous Anglo-Indian cookie. They are sweet cookies that have been deep-fried until they are very crisp. They are often used in a variety of Kuswar dishes for Christmas. Because they are so addicting, you can enjoy them at any time of the year. In India, coconut milk is always added to the batter to have the taste typical of the country.
