Winters in Amroha

Gajar ka Halwa- Winter Dessert

You can find very few people on roads after 10 P.M during dark winter nights in Amroha. Due to dense fog the visibility reduces to few meters. All Amrohvis decide to get into their homes. Even Chauraha Kot and Chauraha Naubat Khana are vacant. Groundnut sellers stick to the fire they use to keep the nuts warm. People can be found burning wooden logs as they discuss politics or cricket in early hours of night. Dogs decide to give up their possession of streets during night.

Shivering cold and dense fog is annoying. Its delicious food which excites everyone about winters. Gajak, Rewri, Til ke Laddu, Gajar ka Halwa, Egg Halwa, Steaming hot Gulab Jamuns are season's special. Even at home the menu becomes more delicious. As if its just the season to eat and sleep. Matar Pulao, Khichdi, Fish, Ras ki Kheer, Shakarkandi ki Kheer and many more delicious stuff become part of the menu. This is also the season of papaya, guava, oranges and grapes.

With lesser power cuts and mosquitoes. Amrohvis seem to enjoy winters.
