On my recent getaway to the Agra, I chalked off Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri from my list of places to visit. Whenever I’m preparing an itinerary for a vacation, the thing that features as the most important, after tourist places and accommodation is food. Food is believed to be a reflection of the cultural preferences of the region. The essence of the city lies in the food that is served to us, specially on the streets. I had Dalmoth and Agra ka famous petha on my mind while planning the trip but there was something that I missed out on. 

Recently, a food blogger called @thelostchefff shared a reel on his Instagram handle which featured an unusual sweet. Captioned as Makhan ka tarbooz in the video, the blogger mentioned that the dish is available in Chandni Chowk’s Malivada area. Intrigued by the bright colours and interesting shape, I dug up and found out that it is actually a popular sweet in Agra. Here is what we are talking about.
