Taste of Jaipuri Sweets–LMB

Taste of Jaipuri Sweets–LMB

Welcome to the most favorite and world famous shop of traditional sweets in Jaipur, LMB the Laxmi Misthan Bhandar.

Phirnis  and Ghewar

Authentically Rajasthani Sweets.

Misthan as in Hindi means sweet dishes.   This store opened its door with this Brand name in the year 1957.  And since then it has been the landmark of Jaipur.

I bet every tourist that visits Jaipur, comes to LMB.  This picture shows the pile of Phirnis in front and Paneer Ghewar behind.

These below are traditional Rasgullas.

Rasgullas

They are small balls made of freshly curdled milk and flour, then soaked in sugar syrup.

A variety is available throughout India. Different version and different shapes are found in various parts of the country.

Here first in the row is Rose flavored, second is plain white, third is Kesar (Saffron) flavored and the fourth is a brother of Rasgulla— Gulab Jamun.

Glimpse of the shop.

I was accompanying a group of friends from Mumbai and was mesmerized as always.  Though my frequency to the shop is like twice in a month(minimum) but I am always happy going there.  Colorful Mithais, lovely crispy savories they have so much to offer.

Apart from sweets they have a full restaurant serving traditional meals.

This shop is situated in Johari Baazar, the whole of  market has either traditional Saree shops or Jewelry shops.  Johari in Hindi means Jeweler.  The master plan of the city that took its initial shape sometime in the year 1727, has three parallel markets. The Johari Baazar, the Chaura Raasta and the Kishanpol Baazar .

Wish to see the colors… Come and see here.

This  click is from one of the many many Saree shops that you’ll witness in Jaipur.

Traditional Indian Wear–Saree.

See the colors.

Colors compliment the sandy background of Rajasthan.

For us colors signify the essential beauty of life, which has uncountable shades.

These are traditional Leheriya sarees-a tie & dye method in which a mustard seed is used to make intricate designs and patterns.

Jaipur’s another famous thing– the Gota Work, i.e. borders made of golden colored threads.

Traditional Gota Patti Work

It is widely used in all ethnic wear.

Again something very typical of Jaipur.  The artisans work really hard to make these beautiful designs.

Festivals here are all about sweets and colors…  wear beautiful colors, eat and be merry..

Happy Day!

Hello world!

Hello world!

Nama`scar- Hello- Kushamdeed

This blog is my attempt not to prove to anyone but just to myself that I can dare to share.  Sharing that seems  fairly a simple deed but is surprisingly a complex action.  There is always a fear (at least for people like myself) that if the other person is also willing to accept or not?

Well, obviously it is a baseless fear- though fears are mostly baseless-but for the person who fears it is THE reality.

Anyways, my prime interest to start a blog is to share a glimpse of my city and its food trail with the rest of the world.  I am a snail as far as my pace is concerned so please be with me on this slow day by day discovery of my lovely city JAIPUR.

Hope I’ll be able to excite the food lovers, explorers and travelers of the world who just know this city’s name but know nothing about its real being.

welcome.

C Ya!
