4. Gur Chini

Gur Chini is known for its visually appealing and delicious Indian sweets. But it came into the limelight after supplying mithai for Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s wedding–its Swarnamishtha laddoo made with Italian pistachio and 24-carat gold foil. This isn’t the only exciting combination tho. There are many more including flavours like Woodfire oven roasted kaju rotla, stuffed Medjool dates, assorted revri and gajak boxes and more.

5. Khoya

Khoya is another brand that also made its way to celebrity homes. It was a part of the gift hamper that Abhishek Bachchan took home after winning the rapid-fire round against his sister Shweta Bachchan Nanda on Koffee With Karan in 2018. The Bachchans seemed to like it so much that they spread the word to the Ambanis and Khoya was the choice of mithai at Isha Ambani’s wedding function in Udaipur. Khoya has always stayed true to maintaining traditional regional Indian mithai but adding a premium touch with flavours. So you’ll find a collection of classics and contemporised offerings such as Anjeer Roll, Urad Dal Pinni, Bal Mithai, Mysore Pak, and Classic Khoya Pedas.
