Food Safari - In search of "Dharwad Pedha"

Have you heard of Dharwad Pedha?

If you haven't, then you are missing something.

If you had heard about it but not eaten, then it is a crime!

If you have sweet tooth like us, it is sinful not to have travelled to Dharwad in search of this delicacy.

While we were on one the numerous road trips, we took a detour from the highway to enter the lovely town of Dharwad in search of this mouth watering delicacy  It was around 9.30 in the morning and the "Thakur's Pedha" on Line Bazar was yet to be opened. There was already a queue in front of the shop and we were tenth in the line. When our turn came, we picked few packets of fresh "Dharwad Pedha". 





Read all about famous Dharwad Pedha of Line Bazar here in this article published in Hindu.

In search of Dharwad Peda

When you happen to drive past Dharwad next time, take a detour to relish your sweet tooth. But be an early bird, lest you will miss the "Pedha".

:-) the packing now is much nicer & better... Way back in 1981 Dec when I was young kid I visited this place with my father. Mr. Thakur himself would keep folks to be in line. I recollect vividly we got about 5 Kg of Peda (1/2 Kg Packing) which was some card board boxes.5-6 boxes got distributed in Davanagere on way back to Bangalore, another 1-2 in Chitradurga. Rest got consumed enroute to bangaore and by the time we reached home as in home in Bangalore, there was no sign of cardboard box either...

In Recent times I visited in 2006 once and we about 2 Kgs - Why lesser quantity - I was told "Results Samaya - Yellarigu bekku - addhuke ration..." was told by a person in shop. Mr. Thakur was no there....

Yes, you are correct. The package has changed. But i hope they continue the tradition of making only 150 KGs everyday and don't commercialise it.
