Meals seem incomplete without at least one serving of delightful sweets! Mithai is an inherent part of our Mughlai culture and we therefore have a very large repertoire of indigenous sweet treats that have evolved over time. Whether you like warm treats like Gajar ka Halwa, Badami Kewra Sevaiyan, etc., or desi ice-creams like the Malai Kulfi and Dry Fruit Kesar Kulfi, take your pick from the wide selection offered by this section.
Gajar ka Halwa : Instead of using khoya, I have cooked the carrots in milk, to bring about the same creamy taste and texture, yet save on the time taken to make the khoya.
Of the many varieties of kulfi, this traditional Malai Kulfi stands out with an extra rich and intense flavour and creaminess, all thanks to the slow but rewarding process of condensing full-fat milk till it gets an irresistible texture and aroma. A sprinkling of cardamom accentuates the appeal of this dessert.
