Gujarati Desserts


We often try to learn and try out dishes from other countries without actually realizing how rich our own country’s cuisine is. Take Gujarat for example. The country only sees it as dhiklas and fafdas, but there is so much more to this state! Gujarat serves some of the best desserts in the country and the world (we dare say!). Get ready for a lip smacking ride. These Gujarati desserts are not only delicious; most of them are actually very healthy too. If you ever visit Gujarat and do not try these famous Gujarati Desserts, it’s a waste!



Top this with some rich ghee and sugar and that’s heaven on your plate. It’s very healthy too!
