Festive favourite: Jarnail holding up some of the colourful ladoo offered at the shop in Klang.
KLANG: There are many varieties of Indian sweetmeats but the ball-shaped ladoo still “reigns supreme”. And there can be no better testimony of this than when Deepavali is around the corner.
And it is selling like hot cakes at the Punjabi Sweet Corner, one of Klang’s renowned Indian sweetmeat stalls.
The stall, located at Little India in Jalan Tengku Kelana, sells about 1,200 ladoo daily during this period.
Other popular delicacies there include the pakora and vadai.
According to shop assistant Jarnail Singh, 28, the number of ladoo sold increased as the Festival of Lights approached.
“Normally, I sell about 500 ladoo a day. But this increases greatly during Deepavali,” he said.
The sweetmeats shop sells four types of ladoo – regular, Punjabi ladoo, orange and the semolina varieties – with the regular as the most popular.
The stall, which has been operating there over the past 19 years, is owned by Klang resident Dalbir Kaur.
Dalbir’s daughter Sharanjit Kaur, 32, said high quality ghee and dairy products were used to make the ladoo.
