Lavang Latika

This time I prepared very popular one more Bengali mithai… i.e. LAVANG LATIKA.
Lavang latika gets its name from lavang means long or clove. It’s not that hard to make.  Under this recipe, stuffed puri with khoya and chopped nuts mixture then soak into sugar syrup. This mithai or sweet is made by Bengali’s on very special occasion of Durga Pooja.

We just love the taste of this misthi… it’s not hard in taste and mawa become so soft after frying and soaking… You can increase or decrease the sugar quantity as per your sweet tooth.
