Shaywam Sweet is quite popular among the walled city for its Halwa especially Nagori and Matar Kachori. Shyam Sweets have keen interest in maintaining the quality without compromising the real taste.
I have tried its matar kachori, which was filled with their secret masala, green coriander and raisins tastes both tangy and sweet. Kachori sizes were quite uncommon, very small in size but taste was really excellent.
Kullad Lassi: it was very commonplace nothing extraordinary but quality of lassi was good. As I already late that’s why I didn’t get to chance to taste its Bedmi puri.
