The North Western and Western chunk of India has a special corner for sweet foods in their heart. And although, the entire country loves their mithai and various other desserts, Gujarat, Maharashtra, and Rajasthan have a special place for saccharine in their main course as well. The three states commonly consume a mix of sweet dishes and salted dishes like puran poli, shrikhan, meethi kadhi, and so on. One such popular sweet main dish is aamras.
