Indian Candies

Indian Candies Recipe

Since I got married, I've discovered a lot of Indian dishes. My father-in-law (I call him Daddy) has introduced me to many new, exotic, Indian foods that were unfamiliar to my palate. Today, Daddy had me try a new Indian confection. When I tasted it, it immediately reminded me of the Vietnamese equivalent called kẹo mè xửng Huế, except that the candies contain rose water, whole cardamom pods, dates, poppy seeds, pistachio, cashew nut and almond. The Vietnamese specialty candy originated from the region of Huế, and is almost like nougat covered in roasted sesame seeds with a mixture of sugar, peanut, water chestnut flour, vanilla, a little oil and lemon juice.

The candies are very tasty, not overly sweet, with a soft and chewy texture. I know how to make kẹo mè xửng (which I'll share very soon), so I'll ask my husband Lulu's auntie, for her recipe play around with the ingredients and try to post the Indian version. Stay tuned!
