Now, a website on Bengal's sweet delicacies

Now, a website on Bengal's sweet delicaciesKolkata, March 15 : Lovers of mouth-watering Bengali desserts, like the famed rasogolla, can now enjoy a slice of history about their favourite sweets, courtesy a new website that was launched here Thursday.

Tempting fans of Bengali sweets, the website rasogolla. com, conceptualised by Kolkata's century-old Chittaranjan Mistanna Bhandar Private Ltd, has elaborate sections on rasogolla and traditional sweets, and caters to the queries of the curious fans.

"Sweet lovers at our shop used to frequently inquire about the origin of the sweets. They included regulars as well as foreigners.

We thought why not compile the information into a website," Nitai Ghosh of Chittaranjan Mistanna Bhandar Private Ltd, told IANS.

Rasogolla. com tickles the taste buds through its enticing pages, replete with anecdotes and panoramic shots of delights like sandesh and spongy rasogolla among others.

"We have included detailed information right from scratch like how the milk is sourced for the rasogolla. We have introduced only a few sweets so far but gradually we will add more," said Ghosh about the website, which also reaches out to a wider audience through social networking.

The website contains pages on sweets that are associated with Bengali customs like Jamai Sashthi (the son-in-law's day) and Annaprasan (first time a baby tastes food other than milk).

"It will also serve as a platform for discussion and sharing information on mishti (sweets)," said Ghosh.

Chittaranjan Mistanna Bhandar Private Ltd was started in 1907 by Ghosh's grandfather Hiralal Ghosh.(IANS)
