Akhrot ki laiya – forgotten Navabi recipes!

My father used to bring it from Rampur along with singhade ki kachri. All made in cow’s desi ghee. That tiny halwai shop owner told my father that how his forefathers left Kashi’s palaces and settled down in Rampur. Because his mother was so much in love with her mayka.

Pista lauz, this laiya and many other things are quite difficult to find now a days.
