Gond is edible gum that is used in sweets that are made North India where temperatures drop drastically during winter. Dry ginger helps in keeping the body warm and gond helps in boosting stamina and also helps in fighting cold and cough. 

Chef Akanksha enhances the taste of these sweet meats by adding makhana, dry fruits and coconut along with jaggery and ghee making it a complete dish that provides nourishment and delightful taste.
