Maharaja Sweets and Snacks

Kesar pista, Maharaja Sweets

Like Indian food in general, Indian desserts are less a culinary canon than a universe of possibilities, and one of the best places in town to explore them is Maharaja Sweets and Snacks in Jackson Heights. The glass cases barely contain a riot of colors, shapes, and textures, including kesar pista, gajar burfi, coconut jamun, and the nuclear-fallout-hued pink cham-cham.

The pink cham-cham was our favorite, like a moist yet hard cheese, and not just because it was the prettiest.
