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.
One thought on “Sohan sweets, radhe Lal halwai (3034 masjid khajoor, behind Jama Masjid, Dharampura, Kinari Bazar, purani dilli, delhi)”
Did the samosa have any alu in it? Or just peas?
