INDIA: Jaipur

Puri stalls can be found all over India. It's a great snack that can be served with either halwa, korma, chana masala, dal or potato based curries. It's made of wheat flour and salt. The dough is then rolled out in a small circle and deep fried in ghee or vegetable oil. While deep frying, it puffs up like a round ball.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. Or kulfi. In this case.

Ghewar is a delicious Rajasthani sweet made of wheat flour which suger syrup is poured. Ghewar sweet known for its matchless sweetness comes in varieties such as plain, desi ghee, paneer and mawa. Paneer ghewar is garnished with paneer and is highly demanded for their tasty flavor. It is a speciality prepared for Gangaur festival here in Jaipur.

I am glad we were in town for the festival. Elephants, camels, beautiful costumes and a great parade with music.
