Sukhadia's Snacks & Sweets | Rogers Park/West Rogers Park | Indian/Pakistani | Restaurant
Tiny corner sweet shop.

Our Review

This tiny corner store, the first Chicago franchise of a family-run chain, is a feast for the eyes. Two huge display cases are filled with Indian sweets in all colors and shapes: orange ground-almond cookies, cashew flour and fig paste tubes, and deep-fried pink rounds of chickpea flour. Homemade cheese balls come soaked in sweet syrup (ras gulla) or swimming in creamy milk and garnished with saffron and pistachios (ras malai). Beyond these cases is a counter where Indian fast food is served -- lilva kachori (deep-fried rounds of green peas and chiles), khaman (square cakes of savory chickpea flour colored bright yellow), and patra (taro leaves rolled with ground chickpeas and pungent spices). Dishes are served with poori (deep-fried wheat bread) and two tasty sauces: a spicy cilantro-jalapeno one with ginger and mint, and one of sweet-and-sour tamarind. A variety of crunchy, salty mixes of spiced nuts, sesame sticks, and other snacks are available by the pound. There's also ice cream and kulfi, an Indian frozen dessert made from boiled milk.
