A little more about this Mithai
Our favourite bits from the quintessential candy bars from our childhood come together in the Coconut Caramel Patissa Bar.
While experimenting with soan papdi, our Chefs realised the potential for its application in candy. This traditional Indian sweet is made by cooking gram flour, sugar and ghee until a stretchable caramel is formed. The extremely hot mixture is then hand-pulled to form fine, flaky, crunchy fibres that simply melt in the mouth. While studying this painstaking technique from mithaiwalas in Kolkata, Chef Girish realised that it would make a unique textural addition to a traditional candy bar.
The layer of soft caramel was inspired by some of our most beloved chocolate bars from ‘5 Star’ to ‘Twix’, with a grown-up twist of freshly cracked black pepper. Taking a cue from the ‘Bounty’ candy, the subtle flavour of coconut was added in the form of our light-as-air coconut fluff.
This reimagined candy bar is finally coated with dark chocolate, thus resulting in the Coconut Caramel Patissa bar!
How it's made
If you think you can't only have one chip of lays. This is just going to make you come back to eat this again and again
