62-year-old Shakuntala Chand’s 20.4kg barfi has won the ‘Sabse Badi Mithai Competition’ during the Diwali Dhamaka Show in Nakasi, Fiji.
Sandhya Sharma came in second place with her 17 inches laddoo while Ashnita Devi’s 11kg modak won third place.
Chand’s barfi has set a new sweets record in Fiji.
She told FijiVillage that it took her almost two days to make the winning barfi.
Chand feels that others too should make traditional Indian sweets and showcase their talent in such competitions.
Shakuntala Chand has won F$500, Sandhya Sharma has won F$300, and Ashnita Devi has won F$200 respectively.
The Navtarang and Radio Sargam competition was sponsored by Vodafone’s Vitikart and FMF Sabse Badi Mithai.
