Whether in mint or filled with strawberry, Kamali Das’ chocolates come in many shapes, on her Facebook page, Edible Sins
In the summer of 2007, Kamali Das received a courier from Mumbai. It was a box of wrappers, chocolates, moulds and essentials needed to make chocolates. This parcel was her cousin’s way of telling Das, who has been baking for the past 25 years, that she should try her hand at chocolates too. Before long, Das was making chocolate bars and solitaires, in flavours like butterscotch and mint, and with fillings like rum and raisin, strawberry, jelly, badam and cashew, etc. “I use Celbourne chocolate that we pick up from Mumbai,” says Das, who also dons the roles of housewife and accountant to her husband who is into construction.
A month ago, Das started a Facebook page Edible Sins, from where she sells her chocolates and cakes (think English sponge cake, strawberry cheesecake, etc) and hopes to add tarts and savouries soon. You will also find her chocolate bars at MaalGaadi in Besant Nagar. Das and her niece Cindana Manickavel (a home baker, popular for her desserts in jars, sold under the moniker Sugar Monkeys) will be taking a two-day baking session this weekend (May 10-11). Limited only to 10, participants will learn the basics.
Chocolates from Rs. 800 onwards per kilo. Details: 9444056999
