If you are shopping near Avenue Road and looking for a quick snack that involves stuffing your face with North Indian delights, look no further than Jodhpur Sweets.

Snacking On

Located in Chickpet {you can Google it}, this mithai store is home to kachoris, samosas, and fafda. Start with the kachoris, that’s crushed and served with onions, mint and tamarind chutney. It’s INR 20 and if you are nursing severe hunger pangs, then you can easily finish two to three in a go. Samosas get the same treatment, but we are sticking to the kachoris simply because they’re really good {and perhaps the best in that part of the town}. If you have any space left, then go for the fafda, that’s served with mint chutney at INR 40 {per 100 grams}. If you don’t know what fafda is, think of it as nachos. Now, they have khakras too, but they don’t serve it by the piece. So you’ll have to buy half a kilo for INR 100. Don’t think that is too much because it’s not. It’ll be finished in no time!

Apart from khakhras, they have a lot of namkeens you could either have at the store or get some packed for home. Mixtures of four different kinds, mini samosas, bhakharwadi, sev, bhujia, and ghatia are what we noticed. These start at INR 80 per kilo.

Mithai Bhai

With a name like Jodhpur Sweets, it’s obvious that this place is going to have all kinds of Indian sweets. Your usual sweets such as laddoo {besan & boondi}, barfi, balushahi, kaju katli, peda, jalebis, and jhangiri are all available by the kilo with prices starting as low as INR 120 per kilo. But more than these, we were interested in the ras malai and malai khewa, with the ras malai being available for INR 20. And don’t think you’ll stop at one. It’s OK, no one is judging.

They also have a selection of pickles that ought to make any homesick North Indian happy. While aam ka achar {mango pickle} seem to be available in plenty and varieties, we spotted Mirchi Pickle and Mixed Vegetable amongst the mix.
