1. Laxmi Mishthan Bhandar, Johri Bazar As recommended by Parul Gupta @kraviings, Pankaj Singhania @jaipurkafoodie, Radhika Agarwal @thefoodiedevi, Manika Karnawat @jaipurbuzz 

Laxmi Mishthan Bhandar (LMB) is situated in Johari Bazaar, the beating core of the city. All throughout the world, people look forward to tasting LMB's famous sweets. Its customer base comes from every corner of the world. It's popular with both locals and visitors thanks to its delicious desserts like the Special Paneer Ghevar. In 1727, when Jaipur was formed by the then-ruler of Amber, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, he encouraged merchants and artists from other cities to settle in the new city. Among these new residents was a group of halwais, who opened a modest sweet shop in the city's Johri Bazaar. About 1949–1950, Maliram Ghodawat, a descendent of the original halwais, renamed the shop Lakshmi Mishthan Bhandar (LMB). Radhika says. “Laxmi Mishthan Bhabdar (LMB) is the pioneer of Ghevar in Jaipur. A box of Ghevar is mandatory in our house for every festival. Whenever our friends & family from abroad come to Rajasthan, they make sure to take multiple boxes of Ghevars along with them from LMB, such is the love for its true flavours.
