Abar Khabo (English: Eat Again) is a sweet originating in West Bengal that consists of two concentric spheres containing pistachios, cashews, raisins and kheer.[1][2]

History

Abar khabo was invented by Nobin Chandra Das when requested by the Maharani Swarnamoyee Devi of Cossimbazar to create a new kind of sweet. Upon eating the abar khabo the Maharani exclaimed "আবার খাবো" (Abar Khabo) which became its name.[3][4]

Kolkata-based sweet shops of the Gupta Brothers and Bhim Chandra Nag are known for making abar khabo.[5]
