Treat from Home & Meme

I have been craving besan ka laddu for quite some time now. And I mentioned it to my brother during one of our regular conversations. It was a coincidence that a close friend was passing through Delhi around that time. And sure enough, a big Bikanerwala Besan Laddu pack came with my friend.

So for the past couple of days, I have been opening the pack after dinner and savoring a big laddu filled with ghee, pistachios, cashews and of course, love.

Thanks Bro!
