A video showing the making of ‘honey candies’ has gone viral

In recent times, several ‘making of’ videos have been making the rounds online. They allegedly show what goes on behind the scenes during the manufacturing of different food items, from snacks like kurmura and salted peanuts to sweet treats like cakes and ice-creams. More often than not, people are left quite concerned with the reality of ingredients, techniques and lack of hygiene. We recently came across another such viral video which has left many Instagram users aghast. This time, the food in focus is a reddish sweet known as ‘honey candy’ or ‘thaen mittai.”

In the video, we see a person at a factory/ manufacturing unit mixing red colouring with what looks to be oil in a kadhai. Water and flour are added to the vessel next. The person combines all the ingredients with his bare hands to form a thick dough. He then transfers the dough to another container and drizzles oil or ghee over it. Afterwards, he takes the dough and spreads it on a flour-dusted surface. He flattens the dough evenly with a rolling pin. Next, using a small handheld tool, he pierces the flattened dough to get bite-sized pieces of candy. These small pieces are fried and then dunked in what seems to be sugar syrup. They are finally packaged in plastic. Watch the full reel here:
