Essence of an awesome sweet
We accept as true with in weaving the Artisanal reality and experience of the happiness, because it’s a work of pure artistry. The ingredients and the extent sweetness is what distinguishes the first-class of the Mithai. ARQ Mithai’s sweetness is relatively well balanced than those of market requirements.

Our love for meals and ardour for the art. We had continually questioned why an Indian Sweet can’t take delivery of the same finesse and significance as its French counterpart.

Having worked at numerous Michelin big name kitchens for around 9 years in London, my (Ashay) never ending desire for perfection and attention to the minutest info is what I’ve applied at ARQ.

I (Ashay) for my part love Nani’s Garden Seed Cress; that’s inspired from my Nani’s laddoo that I ate as a child in Maharashtra. It is one of the healthiest alternatives from our variety of mithai and is ideal for fitness conscious consumers. My (Neha) personal favourite is Martiline Marmalade that is enormously candy & has citric flavours of tangerine and malta orange folded into gurmandi almond paste to create this tangy pride.
The satisfactory way to peel out the skins of almonds is by means of soaking them in luke heat water. This makes it quicker and and does’nt affect the badams taste. Once the almonds are peeled, location them in a separate bowl.
Grind the almonds in a grinder coarsely and sed apart.
Firstly add the sugar and water in a conventional Indian kadhai with a thick bottom, and permit the sugar to mix in.
Wait for the sugar syrup to return to a mild simmer and slowly add the ground almonds to it. Stirring all the time at the same time as doing so.
Add the chopped orange & tangerine peels and fold them in until the mild flavor of oranges get jumbled together to the combination.
Add the ghee until you get the right regular texture and region onto a tray.
Once the base is positioned in the tray allow it to cool down and set.
Then cut the mithai with a knife and area the dehydrated oranges on top of the mithai. Serve.
