A traditional mithai that everybody has a reason to like—some for the taste, some for the goodness of doodhi and milk, and some for the warm feeling it instils on a rainy day!

I know some busy-bees who would stop over at a sweetmeat stall, have a cup of halwa and a samosa in lieu of a meal, and continue their work with full energy!

Besides sweet you can consume doodhi in a variety of other dishes like Doodhiya Kheech , Doodhi Theplas , Doodhi Muthia , Doodhi and Chana Dal Subzi , Budijaw and Doodhi Kheer .
