People say our Bangladesh is a land of festivals. We are often remarking that in twelve months of the year we celebrate thirteen occasions. It is very true. Among all these occasions the most celebrated all over our country is the traditional "Pohela Boishakh". This is a universal festival of Bengalis.
Pohela Boishakh is celebrated with great pomp and arrangements. People wear traditional outfits with Boishakhi design and colour. Children also have Boishakhi touch in their dresses. Men wear Panjabi, dhuti, pyjamas, traditional lungis. Women wear traditional sarees. They prominent colour of this celebration is white and red along with men. People enjoy concerts, musical shows in the dawn at Ramana Batamul. There are fairs held for this purpose. But an occasion is incomplete without its remarkable signature food items. The most popular tradition of the celebration is "Panta-Ilish" with different types of Vortas. But there are other dishes also which fulfils the platter. That most wanted item is sweetmeats of Pohela Boishakh. Shopkeepers arrange a special programme called "Halkhata" for the customers. In here, customers are welcomed with different sweets. Not only this, people buy sweets to welcome their guests in this Bangla New Year.
The most common sweetmeats are - Balushai, different types of Chamcham like dry Chamcham, Porabari Chamcham, Pata Chamcham, special Chamcham, Golapjamun, Lalmohon, sponge Roshgolla, dry Roshgolla, Rosh Kodom, Rosh malai, Malaikari, Kacha Golla, Sandesh, mithai barfi, Kaju Barfi, kheer toast, Kalojam, baby sweets, Mawa laddoo, Moticur laddoo, Malaikari nut, curd, kheer, Fiirni, etc. Either you can make them at home, or you can buy them from sweetmeat shops. But it is obvious that both the host and guests won't feel festive without these traditional sweetmeats.
Don't worry thinking how will you manage. Very easily you can buy them from your local shops. Again the question arises will those be good enough to present them to your guests? Will you get the actual amount? Will they be soft enough and juicy with sugar syrup to melt in your mouth? Maybe not. Because maximum time the shop sweets contain only flour, no chana or Mawa.
