Before I present the roundup, I want to announce the next sweet series event for the month of August, 2008.

sweet series - Chikki and Laddu.


Please read the following rules before sending your entries.


Click here to learn about chikki

Laddus (not deep fried) - Laddus made of flour/rava/dal/nuts etc are accepted.

NOTE: Please do not send in entries that are deep fried. Please do not send in Burfi. They will come under a different category. There is a difference between chikki and burfi. Chikki is a made of pure Indian cane sugar called jaggery is heated and mixed it to nuts, sesame seeds or poha and shaping it before it hardens. There are three common types, with either nuts (mostly peanuts), sesame seeds, or puffed rice. Note that the jaggery is used only to coat the roasted nuts/sesame or crisp poha. Burfi is when the content is mixed continuously in heat and then laying it in a flat plate and cutting into diamonds after it cools a little.
