Lucknow: Butter Malai, which is also known as Lucknow ka drya and is also known as Lucknowi Mithai. The special thing is that people can enjoy this sweet only for 4 months. 4 months means that it is sold in the market only from October to February.
You will see all the small shops of butter cream near the famous flower street of Chowk. This sweet comes only in winters, the reason being that it is made by keeping it under dew in winter.
That is, the dew that falls in winter by mixing cream and milk is kept under it from the sky. Then in the morning both are mixed. The foam that is prepared after the meeting of both is called butter cream. After this, it is prepared by adding saffron, dry fruits, cardamom and sugar candy. People come from far and wide to eat this Lucknowi sweet.
