Dhoda :A Rich Taste Sweet

 

Dhodha’, a popular sweet delicacy, whose popularity reaches foreign shores, is manufactured and marketed from Punjab’s small town, Kotkapura.

Invented almost a century ago by a wrestler, Dhodha is nutritious and delicious too.

Harbans Vig, a wrestler wanted to include something rich and nutritional in his diet. So, he got down to experimenting in his kitchen where he stumbled upon this sweet nourisher in 1912, in a town called Khushab of Sargodha district, now in Pakistan.

After partition, Harbans’s family migrated to India and settled down in Kotkapura town and commercialised the sweet for sale.

The recipe of the Dhodha sweet has been a well guarded ’secret’ and for generations the family has improved on its taste, its quality and the shelf life.

 Dhodha’s shelf life is 2-3 months, if no fungus settles on it or if it stored in normal room temperature. No sweet has a shelf life for more than 15-20 days, except Dhodha
