Double ka Meetha, Hyderabadi Dessert

A festive sweet from the rich Hyderabadi repertoire, the Double ka Meetha is a little on the sweeter side as the name suggests, but it is meant to be like that – rich and pampering, so go for it!

Made with a unique mix of ingredients like bread, mava and almonds, this milky sweet has a very different mouth-feel and absolutely rich taste.

Tinged with Indian spices like cardamom and saffron, this sweet is irresistible, and sure to double the festive cheer!
