Came face to face with this sweet little thing in office today. A new joinee from Pratapgarh shared these sweet, gooey, sticky, soft but non stretchy amla barfis. A very mild taste of amla, though. I didn’t even know where Pratapgarh was till five minutes ago.

As a friend informed, the barfi is  a byproduct of amla processing.  Pratapgarh has extensive amla plantations and amla processing units. When they make amla candy or other amla products, a lot of amla flavoured sugar syrup is produced and that is turned into burfi. So, what I was so excited about is actually a byproduct!
