Gond basically means gum/ glue, and edible gum is what these dishes are made of. Both these dishes are almost the same but the taste and the method of preparation are different. Gond ka laddu comprises whole wheat (aata), ghee, gond, and sugar whereas chakki requires gond, mava and sugar and often sticks to the tooth.

3. Imarti

This flower looking dish will transport you to another world altogether. Imarti is a dish that people confuse with jalebi as the look and texture are somewhat similar. The basic difference is imarti is made from Uragh daal, whereas jalebi is made from refined flour (maida).

4. Lapsi

Made with wheat porridge (Gehoon ka daliya), sugar, milk, and ghee. Depending on how you make it, it will either look like porridge or seera. Topped with dry fruits, this dish is easy to make and healthy to eat, not for sugar patients though as the amount of sugar used is double that of wheat porridge.

5. Rajasthani petha

White or refined flour (maida) is made into a dough and then rolled and cut into small pieces. These pieces are then fried and set aside so that they cool down. These are then dipped into hot sugar syrup forming a thick, uneven layer. One bite is enough to give you a sugar rush.  

6. Moti pakh

Moti pakh gets its name from the moti (pearl) shaped bundiya. Bundiya is also an individual sweet dish that is made from gram flour. The already sweet dish is then put into the sugar syrup and spread onto a sheet. It is then cut and made into square-shaped morsels which ultimately make the heavenly moti pakh dish.

7. Seera
