It’s festival season all over the country and now is as good a time as any to find the perfect place to buy your traditional sweets for the festivals that are coming. Whether you’re looking for South Indian sweets or North Indian sweets, there are lots of places in Chennai that cater to sweet tooths of all kinds. Ganesh Chathurthi just passed us by and if you didn’t get your fill of kozhakkattai this time around, don’t worry, you can still find it available in some places.
Onam is just around the corner and while the festival is more about eating and celebrating, you definitely want to find the best desserts you can and feast on them. Indian sweets vary from the way they’re made to the ingredients that are used, but one thing is common in all of them is sugar. And now is as good a time to stuff your face with all the sugar you can get your hands on.
So folks in Chennai, here’s where you can find all the sweets your heart desires.
