The sweet and the off-beat Diwali is incomplete without sugary indulgences, as mithai-binging hits the roof. Hassan M Kamal scoured the city's mithaiwalas, to bring you some of the most unique preparations that are bound to leave the sweet-toothed asking for more.

Why so special?

This seasonal sweet has been prepared at Suleman Mithaiwala for almost 25 years but very few are aware of it. And those who do, can't seem to have enough of it. A rare offering, this is prepared only during winter, but Irfan Mithaiwala will be preparing it for Diwali, only if pre-ordered. Combining the power of eggs, ghee, dry fruits, mawa, this sweet is sold at Rs 850 per kg and was prepared especially to help people beat the winter, as Irfan bhai says, "khate hi garmi aa jaati hai." Minimum order is for two kgs.
At Suleman Mithaiwala, Mohammad Ali Road, next to Minara Masjid.

Rose Cake
