Jalebi

Jalebi

Jalebi is a very sweet cake commonly known as “gato moutai” in our local jargon. It is prepared by deep-frying a wheat flour (maida flour) batter in circular shapes, which are then soaked in sugar syrup. The sweets are served warm or cold. They have a somewhat chewy texture with a crystallized sugary exterior coating.

Gulab Jamun

Gulab Jamun

Gulab Jamun also is a sweet dessert and is a bit similar of Rasgulla. It is shaped like a small sausage, deep fried and dipped in a light rosewater flavoured sugar syrup. It is often garnished with dried nuts like almonds to enhance its flavour.

Rasgulla

Rasgulla

Rasgulla is a milk base syrupy dessert made from milk solids and fat. It is round and spongy in consistency. These deep fried balls are left to soak in heavy sugar syrup flavoured with cardamom and rose water.

Barfi

Barfi

Barfi is a dense milk based sweet confectionery. The main ingredients of Barfis include condensed milk and sugar. The ingredients are cooked in a vessel until the mixture solidifies. The flavour of a Barfi is often enhanced with fruits or nuts (such as cashew, pistachio) and spices (such as cardamon). They are typically cut into square, diamond, or round shapes. The sweet is easily adapted from casual occasions to the most formal event, which explains its great and enduring popularity. Different types of Barfi vary in their colour and texture.

Ladoo

Coconut Rock / Gateau Coco

This is another delicious Mauritian treat made of shredded coconut sugar, sweet condensed milk and vanilla essence. Then the mixture is spread evenly on a greased tray. Once dried, it can be cut in different shape.

Rasmalai

Mauritian Napolitaine

Mauritian Napolitaine is a typical dessert from our gorgeous island of Mauritius. We should not confuse it with the Napolitaine Cake which is normally a 3 layered sponge cake with chocolate filling. The Mauritian Napolitaine is normally a short crust biscuit which is filled up with strawberry jam and topped with coloured icing sugar by using simple base in the kitchen like butter and sugar. It can be in any shape namely heart, star or round shapes.
