Sweet, Sweet, Sweet Delights...


See those little pink squares ? They are called Barfi. Sweet little Indian delicacy that I've found myself totally hooked on ! These pink ones are named Babydolls..or at least that's what it sounded like when I asked the lady behind the counter that day. My first encounter with a Barfi was when I went strolling in MidValley during the Deepavali  week. As I walked around the promo area, I saw this little stall bustling with activity. What attracted me was the lady behind the counter..I believe she is known as Mdm. Teranjit Kaur. As she called out to passers-by to try her sweet desserts, she was also attending to her customers...the queue was..well..LONG ! Mdm. Teranjit affectionately calls her customers either darling or sayang. And if people weren't attracted by her friendliness and efficiency..then its gotta be the little bites of heaven that she was selling ! When I stopped to buy the Barfis and Coconut Candy from her..I was the only non-indian standing in line ! or specifically I was the only Malay standing in that queue...But was she surprised to see me ? Nope ! instead she asked me to try a bit of everything that she had on the counter. Try I did !! but when I got to the pink delights called Babydoll..I stopped..coz..it was then that I fell in love..not only with the colour..but also with its softness, its lusciousness, the way it melted in my mouth, the way it got me wanting more..and so for my nephew's wedding..I packed 3 layers of Barfis in a glass bowl, placed it in a decorated basket and send it along as a 'hantaran'..hoping that they too would love it as much as I do...

Rasa dia mcm candy yang kita selalu makan dulu2 ke kak Lin? Does it have a tinge of strawberry flavour in them? Must one day rasa.
