Indian sweets are made and eaten a lot on the occasion of festivals, feasts, celebrations and ceremonies, such as religious festivals, get-together s, weddings, engagements, birthdays and also just because one wants to have sweets.
Indians love sweets. Festivals are just an excuse to eat sweets.
Most sweets are available in sweet shops but some are just homemade sweets. These sweets are made in different ways. Boiled, steamed, roasted, deep fried etc. You can choose according to your taste.
Indians serve most sweets as a part of meal and not just as a dessert at the end.
Some sweets are served with a particular accompanying dish. For example Srikhand, an Maharashtrian / Gujarathi sweet is served with poori.
Some sweets are special to regions too. Bengali sweets, such as rasgolla(also spelt as rasagolla/rosogolla), sandesh are popular all over India and outside India too. They are now available everywhere in india.
Kheer is generally made with milk and vermicelli. Kheer is also made with rice, mung dal, Bengal gram dal, wheat, (dalia)broken wheat, poppy seeds etc in South India.
These kheer recipes do not need milk so are good for vegan sweet recipes. Read more about Kheer and Kheer Recipes
