While Navratri’s are here, we are off all kinds of savoury things (how much we miss the chicken wings) but it’s a time when we can dwell on sugary sweets instead! So, here is a list of mithai’s you should be gorging on before the festive season is over.
1. Sev Badam at Chaina Ram
Chaina Ram in Chandni Chowk is our all-time Old Delhi favourite and their sweets are something no festive season is complete without. Loaded with almonds and pistachios, Sev Badam melts in the mouth.

2. Milk Cake at Gopala
Gopala has a tonne of delicious desserts, including their large-sized rasgullas but if you are fasting during Navratri, it’s the milk cake you can relish without guilt. Grainy and sweet, it is like an Indian version of decadent, caramelised fudge cake.

3. Kesar Rasmalai at Standard Burfee
This milky dessert is creamy and sweet. Even though it is of Bengali origin, it remains one of the most celebrated desserts during Navratri, owing to its cold temperature. The addition of Kesar just takes it up a notch.

4. Coconut Burfi at Bharat Sweet House
If you are a coconut fan (or not) you ought to fall in love with this two-coloured unique piece of mithai. Served in rectangles and wrapped in Bharat Sweet butter paper individually, it is a treat for the taste buds.

5. Milk Mysore Pak at Sarvana Bhawan
A South Indian delicacy, Mysore Pak tastes as decadent as a fudge but has a smooth texture. Made with generous amounts of ghee, milk, cardamom and sugar, this rich dessert is absolutely delicious and quite sweet.

6. Kulfi at Ravi Raj
Everyone fasting during Navratri will agree that kulfi is must have after the heavy “fasting” meal and no one does stick kulfi better than Ravi Raj. Available in different flavours, its signature badam kulfi is our all time favourite.
