The most well-known mithai shop in Lucknow when it comes to Bengali sweets, Kanchan Sweets & Pastries in Indira Nagar has been serving authentic Indian mithais since 1985. This Holi, they’ve come out with a jaw-dropping range of gujhiyas in 21 varieties! Shop here for traditional gujhiyas, healthier gujhiyas and exotic gujhiyas. Read on to find out what we recommend:
Like your gujhiyas baked and not fried? You will be spoilt for choice here. Apart from the regular baked gujhiyas (₹700/ kg), they have baked Choco Nut Gujhiyas (₹800/- kg). A Kanchan Sweets exclusive, it comes with all the goodness of the the classic mawa gujhiya, but dipped in finest chocolate and topped with roasted nuts & dry fruits.
For something fancier, try the Wafer Crust Baklava Gujhiya (₹2200/ kg) that combines all the flaky texture of a baklava and the flavour of a gujhiya!
Store-bought gujhiyas don’t just have to be fancy! For the bilkul ghar wali perfect gujhiya, go for the Desi Ghee Gujhiyas (₹ 760/ kg) at Kanchan Sweets, that taste as good as mom-made pakwan! For those with a sweet tooth, there’s nothing to beat the lure of the sugar-syrup coated gujhiyas. Try them in bite size when you buy the Pagi Baby Kesar Gujhiya (₹900/ kg). Like your mithais more rich? Opt for the Shahi Gujhiya (₹1100/ kg) that are prepared with a royal mixture of saffron-infused dry fruit filling.
Ditch the tried and tested flavours for something more! The premium range of gujhiyas at Kanchan Sweets are great for making the big impression while gifting. It comes in 4 flavours – Kaju Kesar, Gold Badam, Gold Pista and Solitaire Gujhiya, and as exquisite as the names suggest. All of them are flourless gujhiyas – their crust is prepared with dry fruits. Try the Saffron-infused Kaju Kesar Gujhiya (₹1800/- per kg) stuffed with Iranian Pistachio Lauj (paste) or the Gold Badam Gujhiya (₹15,000/ per kg) prepared with California almonds & coated with 24-carat edible gold leaf!
