  1. Very nice. I think you should check Haji Allauddin sweets shop at 56 Phears Lane, colutola, kolkata 73. It’s a 100 years old shop, manufacturing only Pure Ghee sweets with Gulabjamun and Mawa Laddoo being their speciality. It was aired on NDTV Zaika India show a couple of years back too.

  2. Namaskaar dear brother Deb. I really hope that one day I will get a chance to visit Kolkota and eat all the delicious looking sweets.
