khazana of sweets

The undivided Bengal has always played the pioneering role in the domain of sweets and confectionaries. Khazana has recently brought in a blend of special Indian and Bengali sweets. Inspired from the golden age of Bengal's resurgence in the second half of the nineteenth century, Khazana now presents Khazana Mithai, created with the same passion for excellence that is the hallmark of their hospitality.

Keeping in mind that mishti is an integral part of our rich Bengali heritage, the flagship store Khazana Mithai has used fresh, superior ingredients- some imported from India- and the best in presentation and packaging. The sweets are gorgeously offered in metal, shola and wooden dalas that have been decorated creatively. The potteries have been obtained from Potuakhali and have been specially designed by the country's renowned designer and Khazana's chairperson, Maheen Khan to create a traditional hari. There are outstandingly special wedding dalas and the catering service also extends to serve all corporate and social events as well.

The delights of Khazana Mithai are Motichur-ke-Laddu, Kaju Barfi, Badam Barfi, Rasmalai, Gulab Jamun, Chamcham, Kalakand, Chocolate Sandesh, Chanar Payesh and Sugar-free Sponge Rasgolla. Master halwai chef Dudh Kumar Ghosh, a well-reputed Halwai professional for more than a decade, showcased his culinary skills magnificently here. The price range varies between Tk150 to Tk750 and is definitely worth buying. General Manager of Khazana, Avishek Sinha, also wishes to expand to other parts of Dhaka, namely, Uttara, Dhanmondi and Gulshan. He also expressed his fancy to open a store of salted items in the future. Indubitably, Khazana hopes to continue with its commitment for quality in its mithais too, which is a great place for a sweet indulgence, be it on an occasion or just like that.
