For centuries, India’s rich and diverse culinary traditions have enamored taste buds across the world with their lively tastes, fragrant spices, and mouth-watering treats. Among the many delicacies that have emerged from this ancient land, mithai, or Indian sweets, hold a special place in millions of hearts. At Mawa Sweets in Melbourne Australia, there is reverence for the art of making these delicate goodies.

The word “mithai” came from the Sanskrit term “mistha” which means sweet or tasty. This beginning shows the deep cultural significance of sweets to Indian society, where they are important in celebrations, festivals, and everyday life.

Ancient Roots of Indian Sweets

Indian sweets trace its origins as far back as ancient times when people mastered the art of cultivating and refining sugar products. With the opening up of trade routes and the introduction of spices in the sub-continent, innovative cooks and confectioners started experimenting with unusual ingredients, resulting in a plethora of flavours and textures that would later form the foundation for modern Indian mithais.

Preserving Tradition at Mawa Sweets

At Mawa Sweets, our skilled chefs, having inherited family recipes passed down through generations, meticulously craft each mithai with the utmost care and attention to detail, from the velvety texture of gulab jamun to the decadent layers of kaju katli, ensuring every creation is a testament to the enduring legacy of Indian sweets.

Dairy Products in Indian Mithai

One distinguishing feature of Indian sweets is the creative use of dairy, such as milk, ghee (clarified butter)and khoya (a type of condensed milk solid). These ingredients give a thick texture but also carry cultural symbolism indicating the historical prominence given to dairy products within India’s cuisine and customs. 

At Mawa Sweets, you’ll find an array of milk-based sweets, such as ras malai and the luscious rabri.
