In India, sweets are associated with festivals, offerings to god and private parties such as weddings, birthdays and so on. Invites are accompanied with sweet boxes and parties end up with take home gifts including at least one sweet, if not a box of them. The wedding platter or buffet has minimum two sweets.
Seven cup cake is one such party sweet which is more popular in South India. Buy seven cup cake at Opportunity Infinity online store in 250 grams, 500 grams and one kilo gram quantities and is priced at 550 rupees per kilo.
Shelf life of sweets count when they are made in large scale, especially during festivals for distribution among friends. Seven cup cake has a shelf life of up to 10 days, in room temperature.
Since sweets are an important part of hospitality, ingredients are carefully chosen, so that it is a hit among the guests. One need not wait till an event and can serve it with hot beverages when a friend or relative visits you.
There cannot be a better name for a sweet, which reminds the entire recipe in a jiffy. Since we need seven cups of something, let’s give a cup each of besan, ghee, coconut and milk. Now that four cups are done, three cups of sugar completes the math. If it is too sweet, make it two cups instead of three. Except for coconut, the entire process reminds Mysur pa. Unlike Mysur pa, dry fruits are also added to this cake.
Barfi or Indian cake is of Urdu origin, made with besan or gram flour, cashew, pista or perhaps peanuts. Almond, carrot, coconut and walnuts are other patterns of barfi. The other ingredients are milk and sugar. This sweet finds its place in the Diwali buffet.
