Agra pethas are world-famous. But if you are a tourist visiting Agra, you may not know which shop to pick the pethas from, given that Agra is abuzz with such mithai shops. You could definitely ask our guide or driver for the best petha shop, but Agra is infamous for swindle and fraud. To make life easier for you, We got you a list of the best petha shops in Agra. Read on!
1. Panchhi Petha, Sadar Bazaar
So you must have heard of the famous Panchhi Petha, but apparently, too many shops run by the same brand name. You will get the original at the Panchhi Petha in Sadar Bazaar. Here, there is a “Pure” preceding the name. We recommend picking the Angoori Petha, the Kesar Petha, and the original, plain, dry petha from here.
2. Munna Lal Petha Wale
For pethas with unique flavours head here. We recommend trying the orange petha here, which is exceptionally flavourful. Their dalmoth is made of desi ghee dry fruits is to die for. There are no parking spots near the shop, so we suggest you park the car some metres away and walk to the shop. The easiest way to get there is to take a right turn from Hathi Ghat Place when coming from Waterworks on the Hichkee Rooftop Road.
3. Gopaldas Pethe Wale
Gopaldas is known for its tasty and quality pethas in Agra. But their Tajganj outlet has much more to offer. They offer fresh pethas in exquisite varieties such as Paan Petha, Sandwich Petha and Kesar Petha. They are also famous for their Chole Bhaturey and Makhan Malai.
4. Pracheen Petha
Pracheen Petha is famous for its variety of delectable petha and namkeen in Agra. It is a 17-year-old chain offering classic pethas. Their chefs ensure that you go back home fully satisfied with your fill of sugar rush. A Butter Tea Preparation In Agra Scares Chai Lovers On The Internet.
