Who doesn’t love sweets? The Gujaratis too are sweet-lovers, and their cuisine features a large selection of ‘mishthan’, which basically means mithai. Gujaratis love sheeras and make a wide variety of these using different flours and lentils. There are also various unique sweets prepared for festivals and special occasions. Some of them are so easy that you can prepare them any time, even as a tea-time treat!

Try your hand at Gujarati special mishthans like Golpapdi, Magaz , Basundi, Doodh Paak and Atta Ka Sheera.

This wheat flour based Golpapdi is easier to prepare than any of the other traditional Gujarati sweets . Since it does not have too much ghee and is trouble-free to prepare, you can even make it often as an evening snack.

Gujarati Basundi is a rich and delicious dessert of thickened milk, very similar to the North Indian rabdi. Almonds and pistachios add crunch to this creamy sweet. Remember to keep scraping the sides of the vessel when cooking, as that will make the basundi thick and impart a real creamy texture.

I consider this one of the easiest guajarati sweets-with just a few ingredients, which too can be found in all kitchen shelves. Just note a few simple points, and success is assured. While sautéing, keep a lookout for when the ghee separates and the atta becomes lighter, as this is the perfect indic ....

Mohanthaal is another famous sweet from the gujarati repertoire. This sweet needs to be prepared with tact, as the one-thread sugar syrup is the foundation stone for the success of this recipe. If overdone, the dish loses its colour and taste. Also, the mava that imparts the softness to this sweet s ....

This recipe is ambrosia for all sweet lovers, especially those fond of sheera. This coarse-textured, hot sweet takes a long time to cook—as slow cooking with continuous stirring is a must for this recipe—but is definitely a rewarding effort! soak the saffron in warm milk for at least 20 minutes as i ....

Traditionally made of whole wheat flour, easy and flavoursome Golpapdi can also be made more innovatively using a mix of jowar flour, soya flour and rice flour. Make them in advance and store in airtight containers so you can satisfy your hunger pangs with something sweet and healthy!

Although very delicately-flavoured, this coconut sweet gets a rich feel thanks to the tinges of saffron and cardamom that are added. I would suggest the use of traditional coconut grater in order to attain the perfect texture of this sweet. Another key ingredient is the mava, which helps to bind the ....

Richness oozes out of very spoonful of this divine mithai. With the creamy taste of not just coconut but coconut milk too, the Coconut Sheera has a good dose of semolina and crumbled mawa for added volume, and a dash of nuts for an exciting crunch. Sweetened aptly with sugar and flavoured by c ....

This popular old-time favourite is so easy to prepare. Kaju Puri consists of cashewnuts, sugar and cardamom powder. To this, saffron dissolved in milk is added and then a dough is placed inside a bangle between polythylene sheets and rolled to get a perfect round and baked.
