Sweets are a universal symbol of celebration! Sweets are primarily intended to provide unconditional happiness to people. Sweets have always been a fun part of your life, whether it was a wedding or getting good grades at school.

Udaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, India’s most traditional and culturally varied state, is home to various exquisite sweets passed down from the Mewar ancestors.

Mal pua

Malpua is a popular Indian sweet dish that is typically consumed during festivals or special occasions. It is believed to have originated in the Indian subcontinent several centuries ago, and it has since spread throughout the country and to other parts of the world. The dish is made by frying a batter of flour, semolina, and milk or water until it is crispy and golden brown. The fried malpuas are then soaked in syrup made from sugar, saffron, and cardamom to make them soft and sweet.

The word ‘Diljani’ refers to something close to your heart, and after tasting this Udaipur famous mithai, you’ll undoubtedly have a space for it very close to your heart. Diljani sweet is a sweet with numerous little boondis mixed with Orange Juice; a single spoon of Diljani can satisfy all of your sweet tooths.

Malai Ghewar

Ghewar is one of Rajasthan’s trademark sweets, traditionally cooked in homes for Teej Festival and Raksha Bandhan, but the flavour of a normal Ghewar is enhanced when it is topped with creamy Malai and dry fruits. Malai Ghewar can be purchased in any respectable Udaipur sweet shop.

You’ve probably heard of Udaipur’s famed savoury snack, Pyaaz Kachori, but whether you like Pyaaz Kachori or not, Mawa Kachori will never disappoint you. Mawa Kachori is stuffed with Mawa and dry fruits and then soaked in sugar syrup before being served.
