Agra Petha: A Traditional Sweet Dish from the City
Are you a fan of traditional Indian sweets? If yes, then you must have heard about Agra Petha. Agra Petha is a popular dessert that has been savored for centuries. Agra is famous for Agra ka petha and it is believed that this sweet dish was invented by the chefs of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. The Mughal emperor Shah Jahan was looking for a dessert that was as pure and white as the Taj Mahal. His chefs experimented with different ingredients and finally settled on ash gourd, sugar, and water, which resulted in the creation of Petha. The crystallized pumpkin candy soon became popular amongst locals and tourists alike, and it's still a favorite treat for anyone who visits Agra.
Agra Petha Sweet is a translucent, soft candy that is made from ash gourd, also known as a pumpkin. It has a unique crunch that hits your palate as soon as you bite into it. What makes Agra's famous sweet Agra ka Petha stand out from other factory-produced candies is that it is free from additives and flavorings. It's an emotion and a deeply nostalgic one for Agraites.
