COVID-19 guidelines strictly followed while making sweets, says Minister

Dairy Development Minister Rajenthra Balaji on Wednesday said Aavin had set a sales target of 1 lakh kg of sweets for Deepavali.

Addressing the media after launching the sale at Aavin’s headquarters here, he said that last year, the milk producer had sold 80,000 kg of sweets made using butter, khoa and ghee.

The recipes of the sweets, he said, were perfected by star chef Vijay Danny. The sweets were made strictly following COVID-19 guidelines, he added.

Perhaps for the first time, Aavin has introduced nei murukku fried in ghee (250 g – ₹100) and coffee-flavoured barfi.
