Sweet story of Indian Sweets : Mysore Pak

Mysore Pak
Mysore Pak is a delicious rich sweet from state of Karnataka, in South India. It was originated in the royal kitchen of Mysore Palace. It is made of generous amounts of ghee, sugar, gram flour, and often cardamom. The texture of the traditional 'porous' Mysore Pak is slightly hard on the outside, but just melts in our mouth.

Top 20 delicious Gujarati Dishes that you must try when you visit Gujarat

Gujarati diaspora can be found in 129 of 190 countries listed as sovereign nations by the United Nations. Isn't this fabulous! With them, they not only carried their culture and tradition, but also their typical food worldwide. The only thing that comes to my mind is the amount of food gujju's carry with them when they travel. The sheer amount and variety of food and efficacy with which it's served is truly amazing. After Punjabi and South Indian food, gujarati food is the most popular culinary style in India. Each and every region namely North Gujarat, Kutch, Kathiawad and South Gujarat have their own unique touch and recipe style in Gujarati food.

In case you visit Gujarat, be sure that you don't miss these yummy dishes I have listed down.
