Malpua, Phirni, Falooda Or Jalebi: Sweet Treats To Order This Eid

It’s that time of the year again. A month-long fast, and the everyday feast brings us to the holy day of Eid. However, this year might be a little different. No crowded gullies, no social gatherings or no delectable spread to gorge on. But, staying home doesn't stop us from experiencing the festive vibe. As they say every great meal ends with the most gobsmacking dessert, and there's no better reason than Eid to celebrate.

So here are a few places to order Ramadan desserts from and do justice to sweet treats while the festivities are in full swing. 

Malpuas at Suleman Usman Mithaiwala

Apparently, celebrities such as Kangana Ranaut and Huma Qureshi swear by the hot malpuas, dripping with syrup, here. And for what it’s worth, why not grab some of their famous Aflatoon mithai and rabadi for just that sweet kick that you so rightly deserve.

Price For Two: INR 150

Special Mention: There are times when you just can’t get enough of a good malpua. Badri Sweets, close to Bara Handi, makes a delicious double egg malpua that’s big enough for a family. They then add a dollop of rabdi on top, to make sure you sin the right way.

Ice Cream at Taj Ice Creams

Well, what can you say about a 125-year-old institution? Taj Ice Cream is ‘the’ place to have some freshly-made, hand-churned ice creams. The best bit: In summer you can taste the freshness of the fruit while enjoying some rich sinful dessert. Hopefully, that will take the guilt away.

Price For Two: INR 150

Special Mention: Imam Sharbatwala serves some refreshing sherbets with seasonal fruits and flavours that can cool you down after a heavy meal.
