    We usually buy from krishna sweets (T.Nagar) and Adayar Anandha Bhavan. They stay good in fridge for upto a month (but who leaves it that long :crazy). Especially krishna sweets mysore pak and anandha bhavan's mixture were keeping up very well.

    Hi

    Coming to sweets and other items we always prefer:

    Adyar grand sweets
    Krishna sweets in T.nagar
    Gomathi shanker ( opp to t. nagar bus stand) Every item in this shop is very fresh and they are famous for their mixture.


    Good Day!!

    Adyar Ananda bavan.Usually before leaving to US I ask the worker working in the counter where I need to buy sweets to find out which time will be appropriate to come and buy fresh sweets and I also mention that I will be leaving to US,they will tell me the time.If you need to buy any ready made mix like vathakulambhu,etc then grand sweets is the place other than that as fas as sweets is concerned AAB is always fresh and good.

    Don't miss buying from Mannah Sweets near Kodambakkam Railway Station.

    I always buy their Soan Papdi's (both Banaras & normal), Kaju Rolls & Mini Jangiris. They stay fresh even outside the Fridge for close to 15 days. Then store it in Fridge and enjoy.

    Also, their thenkuzhal murukkus and boondhis are good.

    Regards,
    Malathy

    Dear friends,

    Thank you so much for your recommendation.

    IndusLady - I heard about Mannah Sweets long time back, thanks for refreshing my mind. I sure will get their Soan papdi & Kaju rolls, they are fav of my daughter & my husband.

    Satin & Brinda - thxs for recommending Adyar Ananda bhavan. I will check with them b4 leaving to US..are they located in Adyar?

    Archana & Kavitha - I will check with Grand Sweets, i think i have seen their branch in pondy bazaar.

    Advitha - Krishna Sweets... I heard about their yummy mysore pak..

    Keep flowing with shop names and their speciality. My fmly loves Indian sweets & I like to gift sweets to my friends here.

    :thumbsup Viji

    Viji,

    My preference is grand sweets rather than krishna or adyar anandha bhavan.

    In krishna sweets they use too much of ghee for the sake of richness, but it doesnt suits all recipes.Only mysorepa and few traditional sweets are good..rest are ok kind.Whreas adyar annadha bhavan is also the same i.e., good in selected items..but they are truly expensive.

    Grand sweets is worth the cost..Real good taste in savouries and sweets :thumbsup

    Mannah is also a good option.

    the hot jilebi's in venkateswars poli store is terrific but i'm not sure abut itz shelf life. But dont miss to try them when you are in chennai
