Fun fact: During Holi, the Maithil region in Bihar serves the dessert Malpua with mutton or chicken curry as a main course dish.
From Thekua to Parwal Ki Mithai, Bihar is home to some scrumptious desserts that hit just the right spot.
Bihar's sweets have a long lineage and are closely connected to the traditions, customs, and rituals of the place. There are sweets that are specific to certain festivals.
While most native sweets are made using roasted rice flour, due to outside influences, particularly Islamic cuisine, cottage cheese, refined flour, and sugar syrup are also added now to traditional recipes.
Don't be surprised if your sweets taste the same but have different names, since in Bihar, sweets with the same ingredients get a new name when shaped differently.
Sweets have been integrated so deeply into Bihari culture that brides in earlier days used to carry a box of sweetmeat which could be preserved for a long time.
Whether you have a sweet tooth or not, Bihar's dessert is something not to be missed.
