Located in the heart of Dadar , Panshikar has been selling quality sweet meats and savory faral since 1956. Keeping up with the changing times, Panshikar now sells faral to over 50 countries online. In 2006, they started making Diwali Faral Hampers that come packed with sweet and savory faral , diyas and also chandan soap for that auspicious Diwali morning bath. We swear by their Kesar Kajukatli and their Besan Laddu is a must try.
Located at Ranade Road , Dadar , Panshikar also has outlets in Vile Parle and Girgaum. You can also order at http://www.panshikar.com/
Known for their new RTE (ready to eat) range of food items , Godbole are at the forefront of the Faral business both in India and abroad. Delivering their Diwali Hampers to over 176 countries, Godbole Stores make some delicious faral. Their Chivda is amazingly crispy and light and has a sweet after taste. Their Tikhat shev is also a winner. The flaky Shankarpali almost melts in your mouth.
Chandekar Sweets started in 1944 when Shri LaxmanRao Chanderkar would supply sweet meats to the canteens of Mumbai mills. From such a humble beginning, this brand rose to the title of 'Laddu Samrat'. Selling Laddus in Prabhadevi, Dadar , Worli and Parel, Chandekar Sweets are truly the masters of Laddu making. Selling a variety of laddus , their Danedaar Laddu , Nachni Laddu and Kadak Bondi Laddu are a complete hit. But the festive season calls for something special and that is why we suggest you opt for Boondi or Besan Laddu.
Joshi Yanche Family Store, known fondly as family store, is honestly the go - to place for all things Maharashtrian cuisine. so it comes to no surprise that they have everything from BhajanichePith (for you to make the Chakalis at home) to ready made Bhajanichi Chakali . Their Kadbolis are especially crunchy and flavorful. They make special seasonal treats focusing mostly on Diwali and Sankrant.
Established around 60 years ago , this place in Dombivali may not be as popular as the ones in Dadar but they definitely deliver when it comes to the authentic taste of Faral. Known for their crispy sumptuous Karanji , they also make some yummy Jalebis made in Sajuk Tup.
