Budha Halwai – Synonym for Jilebis
Just as Nashik is known as the wine city and River Godavari as South Ganga, Manohar mithai popularly known as Budha Halwai is popular for their jilebis.
Budhaji Laxman Wagh, who started Manohar Mithai, used to work at Agarwal sweets at salary of Rs.1 per month. During those days jilebis were prepared only during the morning time. It was he who thought to make jilebis during the evening time in 1956. Gradually, business expanded and started preparing gulab jamun, shrikhand, basundi, khoya, pedhas, khurchand wadi, curd, etc. But till date their speciality remains jilebis. Even today, Budha Halwai is only one who makes potato jilebis, which are specially prepared for fast. “We make jilebis only on Ashadhi ekadashi and Mahashivratri. Those are the days when maximum people keep fast,” informs Lalit Wagh, the third generation of Budha Halwai.
