A sweet calling

When one craves fresh, juicy Indian sweets to pamper their taste buds, ‘Sweet Moments’ at Kammanahalli steps in. This small and cosy place, which has the simplest of traditional sweets and ‘chaats’ to offer, has been around for 13 years and wishes to just do one thing — serve its customers fresh and tasty food.

The eatery, as the name suggests, is bound to create ‘sweet moments’ for its customers with the limited yet delectable items on the menu — be it the sweets, the lip-smacking ‘chaats’ or the snacks. Faisal Patel, the assistant manager of the shop, says that they have very loyal customers, some of whom have been coming here since a decade or more. “Our customers are a mixed crowd, consisting of both young and old people from across the city. There have been those who have been coming with their entire family and they always compliment us on how we have maintained the quality of our products,” he says.

Vouching for the quality, Faisal adds that his father owns a dairy away from the city and all the raw materials are sourced from there. “We make sure that the items are prepared using the freshest ingredients without any artificial flavour, and those items that have crossed the shelf life are disposed properly,” he says. Apart from the sweets, the place also boasts of homemade ‘paneer’ which usually gets sold in a matter of a few hours, as soon as the stock arrives.

Though the eatery doesn’t have a huge list of items, the menu includes a humble variety of sweets like ‘Ajmeri kalakand’, ‘Milk cake’, ‘Doodh peda’, ‘Chandrakala’ and ‘Kesar burfi’ among others. For snacks and savouries, the eatery offers ‘Mini samosa’, ‘Bombay mixture’, ‘Dhokla’, ‘Ghaatiya’ and ‘chaats’ like ‘Dahi puri’, ‘Samosa chaat’ and ‘Dahi papdi chaat’. “Our curd-based dishes are popular among customers as they know that it is fresh and creamy. There are times when people ask for a little more curd to go with the ‘chaat’ that they have ordered and we serve that happily. We are open to customisation whenever possible as each customer’s taste buds vary,” says Faisal. He adds that another popular item is the ‘Malai chamcham’.

The eatery has a seating capacity of 15 to 20 people. While intending to sustain its quality, the place also experiments with variety at times. “We recently started a sweet called ‘Black currant kaju katli’, where we add dried and crushed black currant pieces,” says Faisal in this regard.

‘Sweet Moments’ is located at Shop no 2, Kammanahalli main road, near Lifestyle, Kammanahalli. For details, call 25430062.
