Desi Ghee Jalebi as Morning Dessert in Amritsar, Punjab

Gurdas Ram Jalebian Wale, Jalebiwala Chowk, Katra Ahluwalia, Amritsar, Punjab

During the Heritage walk morning hours conducted by Davinder Singh (man with white turban), we reached Jalebiwala chowk (Katra Ahluwalia) and a halt to taste famous desi ghee jalebi from a very famous shop running since 1956 from 9 am till 10 pm.

280 rupees per kilogram – The cost. But for an individual, Rs. 10 for a few jalebis served in pattal plates (leaf plate).

Crispy, hot and sweet. Though they serve various sweet items, but jalebi is the most famous one. One should visit to have a few.

Davinder Singh further enhanced our knowledge – Katra Ahluwalia chowk is the location from where for the first time people’s agitation against the Rowlatt Act started on 9th March, 1919.

Great – said I. Thanks for sharing knowledge.

After one or two days I re-visited Gurdas Ram shop during the morning hours to have a few more desi ghee jalebi.
