From the delicious Motichoor Ladoo to the ghee enriched Pootha Rekulu, there are so many marvelous traditional sweets that can make any sweet lover get hooked for life. The history behind their unparalleled pre-eminence is rooted in our Traditions.
Believing that Tradition is forever is this new age artisan sweet shop called Sampradaya that literally translates to “Tradition” in telugu. Located on Road no 68 adjacent to Indian Oil Petrol Pump, Jubilee Hills, was happy to have been invited for a review where-in I was flattered by the detailed architecture at the entrance and contemporary interiors that complements the ethnic theme of Sampradaya. Just like its name, the interiors of Sampradaya are true reflection of the traditions that rings in nostalgia. So you have an imposing picture of mom preparing sweets in the traditional way in one corner and then you have the deity of Ganesha placed at the center.
Sampradaya was started with an aim to offer the most-cherishing homemade delights with a touch of tradition that most of us have memories associated with. Sampradaya offers a wide variety of Andhra Sweets, North Indian Specials, Karapodulu, Crispy & Crunchy snacks, Authentic Andhra Pickles etc. I’ve had my twist with Sampradaya much before and must confess the quality of sweets on offer are top notch.
The entire range of product portfolio was on offer for tasting and I sampled few of them. My pick among them was the more traditional Andhra sweets that included Jangri, Kakinada kaja, Tapeswaram Kaja, Sunni Undalu, Ariselu, Boorelu, Gavvalu, Ragi laddu, Bellam Boondi Laddu, Bobbatlu, Pootha Rekulu etc. Andhra sweets is definitely the forte of Sampradaya that was evident in the quality and taste. Sunni undalu for instance that I tasted was as authentic as it could get which was quite delicious and healthy snack variant and so was the popular layered sweet of Tapeshwaram Kaja – a true indulgence ! It’s a rarity to find such traditional Andhra festive delicacies these days and I’m glad Sampradaya stocks them up fresh.
The Traditional North Indian fare included all the popular sweets from each of the region that they are famous for. There is mysorepak, Assorted Kaju & Badam sweets, Agra Peta, Cham Cham, Rasgulla, Kova Poori, Motichoor Laddu, Badusha etc. My pick among them was undoubtedly the Motichoor Laddu – One of the best I’ve had in recent times.
Other than the sweets, Sampradaya also offers wide range of traditional savories like Chegodilu, Karappoosa, Murukulu, Sakkinalu etc.
Pickles and traditions are synonymous with each other and Sampradaya has made sure to include them as part of their products range. Fresh homemade pickles done in its most traditional way are also on offer at Sampradaya of which I had the opportunity to sample Pandu Mirchi, Avakaya, Usirikaya & Allam along with Nalla Karam & Kandi Karam.
With a wide variety of sweets and savories that treat your taste buds with scrumptious delights, Sampradaya is a one stop place for pure sweet celebration!
Thumbs up for this one !
