Photographer's Note

The fierce looking red spirals are 'imarti's.
Imarti: Imarti(Hindi), Omriti (Bengali) orJhangriin south India, is a dessert invented inthe Mughalkitchen and is now popular across theIndian SubcontinentincludingRajasthan,West BengalandSouth India. Imarti is made by deep-fryingurad flourbatter in a kind of circular flower shape, then soaked in sugar syrup and flavoured with cloves etc. The frying medium for the best (and expensive) quality is 'ghee' which is a kind of clarified butter. This modest vendor - who hastened to cover everything with polythene sheets when he spotted me with a camera - would probably use groundnut oil.
Imartis, especially the ghee variety, are really delicious but are often avoided by health fanatics who don't know what they miss.
