2. Patra or Patroda:
Apart from Himachal Pradesh, the colocasia leaves’ fritters are made in Gujarat as well. The leaves are cut right from their base and washed. Then, the gram flour batter is applied over them for stacking. Many leaves (around 6 to 7) are stacked using the batter. They are folded like an envelope and steamed. Finally, they are fried to a crispy texture. They have a distinct taste and are a perfect tea-time snack. Once you try them, you will become a fan for sure.
This is a baked dish of different spices and rice. Sesame is also a key ingredient which imparts a distinct flavour to it. This is more or less like a savoury cake with an outstanding flavour. You can enjoy it with tea or cold drinks.

6. Ice Dish:
Yeah, the Gujaratis have even made ice cream dishes. They are a fusion of golas and ice cream. The gola is coated with vanilla ice cream and lots of cream. The whole thing is sprinkled with lots of nuts and tutty-fruity. This is one amazing Gujarati sweet that you should try at least once. There are many flavours to try and you will be simply amazed by the taste.

The small round balls will make it impossible for you to stop. They are a famous tea-time snack in Gujarati households. So, if you want to take a break from the regular pakoras, enjoy them.
