We’ve all heard about a revolution in some form or the other. But how about the mithai revolution? Sounds crazy doesn’t it? Except, there’s never much when it comes to mithai. Since the beginning, the world of mithai has always been traditional in its flavours and approach and seldom went through any form of evolution. While western pastry and sweets became the obvious choice for every celebration, mithai only saw a link with festivals.
However, over the past few years we’ve seen a silent yet bold uprising of the mithai revolution. A number of luxury mithai makers in India, while imbibing traditions and discovering new flavours, have come to look at the mithai space with a different lens, giving us a gamut of innovative and interesting mithai. The kind of mithai that you would sneak a little bite of to satiate a midnight sweet craving, fight your sibling off for the bigger piece and never want to share! Modern mithai makers today have reimagined sweet treats to make it a part of our everyday lives.
There’s no denying how interconnected mithai is to Indian traditions and taking
inspiration from these traditions, we at Bombay Sweet Shop, have created something unique and never-seen-before in the luxury mithai space. Something sweet never fails to put a smile on our faces, and we at Bombay Sweet Shop aspire to do just that every single day. Our mithai will rekindle familiar memories yet take you by complete surprise. It’s a celebration of the diversity of Indian mithai, and through our luxury mithai and gifting options, we hope to introduce people all over India to the joys and endless possibilities with mithai, with our take on classic sweet treats. Mithai has always been a part of our cultural and culinary identity and Bombay Sweet Shop looks to celebrate India’s ‘sweet’ heritage through our luxury mithai offerings.
The Magic of Luxury Mithai in India
Here’s how Bombay Sweet Shop reimagines mithai:
1. Dulce de Leche Peda
The classic Lal peda is reinvented with a Dulce de Leche filling, and to elevate it even further, there’s a peanut brittle added for that satisfying crunch. This mithai is a brilliant example of how luxury mithai makers take inspiration from traditional flavours and make it their own.
A happy kitchen accident at Bombay Sweet Shop resulted in these chocolate barks becoming the go-to snack for many. These barks are made by sandwiching a generous layer of silky butterscotch caramel between dark chocolate which is topped with roasted almonds for that extra crunch factor and then sprinkled with sea salt to balance out the sweetness of the rich dark chocolate.
3. Kaapi Paak
All the coffee-lovers, this one’s for you. The richness of the traditional Mysore Paak is no surprise to any of us. The Kaapi Pak is a not-so-traditional take on the classic. The sweetness of the traditional paak is balanced out with a hint of coffee and it is topped with some toasted sesame seeds!
4. Indie Bar
These melt-in-your-mouth Indie bars are filled with coconut fluff, pepper caramel and covered in gourmet milk chocolate. This reimagined candy bar reminds us of our favourite childhood chocolate bar!
One of Bombay Sweet Shop’s best selling luxury mithai, soft malai peda stuffed with palm jaggery-infused rasgulla, coated with desiccated coconut is a must-have. This mithai is 100% vegetarian and gluten-free.
