The Indian Sweets’ Lover Award and The Cookie Lover Award!

Happy Makar Sankranti, guys!!

Hey Pals!! So, today is a popular Indian festival called Makar Sankranti…for more details just Google it, I’m kinda ahem, somewhere between lazy and tired ๐Ÿ˜ถ. On occasion of this festival, I’ll be doing The Indian Sweets’ Lover Award!!

I’m probably one of those people who will get diabetes when they grow up because I eat way too many sweets for my own good…but you can’t blame me, sweets are the best ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ–๏ธ. And Indian sweets are unbeatable!

I was nominated by Prashansa @ Reader’s Alcove (who is also the creator of the award), Rabhya @ Rab’s Bookish Planet, Srishti @ The Srishti Blog, and Dhriti @ The Tomboy Diaries. Thanks to all of them! The first three have awesome book blogs with great tags and reviews, and the fourth one is a younger blogger who writes some really cool poems! I was also tagged by Anjali @ Studio AD, a blog I recently discovered. Go check out these blogs, guys! Now, let’s get started!!


The Indian Sweets’ Lover Award

The Rules:

  • Thank the person/fellow Indian sweetsโ€™ lover who nominated you! (or whose blog you found out about this award through)
  • Answer the 5 Indian sweets-related questions and add one of your own!
  • Share some pictures of your all time favorite Indian sweets.
  • Nominate 5 or more bloggers who love Indian sweets and leave an open nomination for every Indian sweetsโ€™ lover around the world.

1: What are your top three favorite Indian sweets?

How dare you ask just three?! This is gonna be so hard, uff. Well, okay so I have Rasmalai, Malaipuri, Ghewar and malai chaap (yeah, these are four, sorry cannot choose 3). Oh and also, there is this really popular watermelon-shaped barfi that is often eaten at weddings- I love that too!

2: Whatโ€™s an Indian sweet you havenโ€™t tried yet but really want to?

Bold of you to assume that I have not tried a sweet. Just kidding, lemme think…hmm, I do not think that I have ever had Shahi Tukda before, so I would love to give it a shot.

3: Name one sweet which is traditionally made in your city/state (This was also Srishti’s question)

Oof, that would mean I would have to reveal my city. Without being explicit, I am just gonna say that the petha of my city is famous worldwide.

4: Which kind of ladoo is your favorite?

I think my favourite are besan ladoo, they always make me drool!

5: Have you ever tried a chocolate flavored Indian sweet? If yes, name it.

Yes, chocolate petha! It is very good, you will not be disappointed!

6: Dhriti’s question- What kind of Indian sweet are you?

I took this quiz to find out and I got Kaju Katli apparently…which is the one sweet I actually find kinda boring, but okay.

7: Rabhya’s Question-  One sweet that you can eat for the rest of your life?

Can I though? I think rasmalai because it is neither too sweet nor does it lack sweetness. And I would be content eating it daily, hehe.

Here is my question- What is your least favorite Indian sweet?

And here are the pictures of some cool Indian sweets!

So this is the famous jalebi ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
This is malaipuri ๐Ÿคฉ
And this is the watermelon-shaped barfi I was talking about ๐Ÿคค
And these are a combination of various sweets *dies of hunger*

I nominate:

No pressure on y’all, only do the award if you can and want to.

  1. Mokshba di @ Happy Panda
  2. Sam @ Diary of a Dreamer
  3. Khushi and Kunjal @ Duo Disseminators
  4. Siya @The Dramatic Drama
  5. Shivi @ Shivictionary
  6. You!! If you love Indian sweets and want to try out this awesome award, go for it ‘coz I tag You!

The Cookie Lover Award

I was tagged for this a long time ago by Siran @ Far from perfect. She writes fabulous poems, guys, you need to check out her blog! Also Simran, you didn’t specify any questions so I just answered the ones that you answered, lol. Now, let’s do this!!

Also, I can’t figure out who the creator is, so sorry about that.

The Rules:

  • Thank the person/fellow cookie lover who nominated you! (or whose blog you found out about this award through)
  • Answer the cookie-related questions and add one of your own!
  • Share some pictures of cookies you adore! (can be pics youโ€™ve taken or ones from online, just be sure to give credit where credit is due.)
  • Nominate 5 or more bloggers who love cookies and leave an open nomination for every cookie lover around the world!

1: What are your top three favorite types of cookies?

Chocolate-chip cookies for sure, then there are these biscuits called Dark Fantasy which are way too good for anyone’s good. And my sister made some at home once, I do not know what they are called but they rocked!

Fig rolls! They look so yum!!

A Dark Fantasy biscuit, hehe.

I would be an oreo, because people really love them and they are used in almost all kinds of other desserts.

5: Why do you love cookies?

What sort of an absurdly ridiculous question is that ๐Ÿ™‚? That is like asking a reader why they love reading or asking somebody who is gonna commit suicide why they love dying (which technically, they don’t, but that is beside the point). I love cookies bEcAuSe tHeY aRe sWeEt !!

6: Have you ever tried making cookies at home and how did they turn out?

Nope never. I do not like cooking…like at all!

My question: What is in the middle of cookies?

And here are is a picture of cookies!

So my mom made these once!

Once again, no pressure if you do not want to do this.

  1. Dhriti @ The Tomboy Diaries
  2. Naemi @ A Book Owl’s Corner
  3. Ashmita @ the fictional journal
  4. Sahi @ My World of Books

      1. If COVID ever goes away and makes leaving the country possible again, I might have to take you up on that ๐Ÿคฉ
        And feel free to tag me all you want – the question is just when I will do it ๐Ÿ˜ Though I suppose it’s usually when about ten people have tagged me for the same thing and I start to feel guilty for procrastinating too long ๐Ÿคฃ
