Think Rajasthan, think Gauri Gajanand Sweets in AECS Layout. A small snacks and sweets shop that sells snacks for which people queue up - samosa, pyaz kachori, vada pao, dhokla. "Sab kuch sab samay milta hai. Hum marwari hain na", says Prakash who owns the outlet. (Everything is available all the time, we are marwari after all.). Prakash worked at a sweet shop in BTM Layout for eleven years before starting this shop four years ago. His sweets are equally famous, from original Rajasthani ghewar to freshly made jalebis, melt-in-the-mouth gulab jamuns, mewa-stuffed gujiyas, sinfully delicious dal halwa and various others that are difficult to resist. They also do festival specials such as Malpua during Holi and sweet matthis during Karvachauth. This is a must-do streetside eatery when you are in the Brookfields / AECS area.
- Pyaz Kachoris are like dal kachoris but stuffed with a fresh potato-onion sabji.
- There is a queue for samosas which starts around 4:30 - 5 PM on most days.
- Bombay Paos (buns) are available but need to be ordered in advance.
Timing: 7 AM to 10:30 PM
