Short description- in case u r in a hurry
Our young friend shubhra stays in a beautiful century plus old haveli near nayi sadak purani dilli. Her parents Ashok ji & Sangeeta ji are also very good friends of ours – we always enjoy conversations.
When shubhra came home few months back, she brought with her a box of what we jokingly call ‘afeem’ – a box of unputdownable, addictive long gulab jamuns from Sohan sweets.
It was so addictive that we 2 people at home finished I guess 15-20 in one box, in 24 hours!!! Someone who doesn’t usually like sweets ate one of these gulab jamuns in between home workout reps!!!
On a later day we visited shubhra’s house & they took us to the shop. It was a small sho in a niche along a lane behind Jama Masjid.
The shop was old but looked pretty well maintained & clean.
The signage was surely new.
We had many things to do that evening. So we settled for matar Samosa & gulab jamun
Loved the Samosa to the core.
Detailed description – in case u hv the time to njoy reading:
The gulab jamun looked like any other similar sweet. It reminded me of lyangcha of kolkata visually.
The magic of the gulab jamun lied in –
1. It was Not too sweet
2. Loved the Tinge of salt in the sweet that brought about a good balance
3. Dry ish texture – ras had entered but not much, due to the dense texture.
4. The sweet was not at all fluffy.
Rate it 4.75/5
The matar Samosa was just too good. Perfectly khasta , flaky outer cover. Balanced seasoning in the matar filling. Perfect texture of matar – not hard, not too soft to lose texture.
Rate it 4.5/5
Overall rating of food we had at Sohan sweets averages out to 4.6/5
A must visit, says YUMMRAJ.
