    I stayed in Dehradun for some months, which is close to Himachal Pradesh, but I never heard of babru. I wish I had the chance to try these. They look so good!

      Babru is one of the traditional cuisine of HP. But you know the traditions are diminishing day by day with each move of our’s to modernization. That might be the reason you didn’t hear about Babru inspite of being so close to Himachal Pradesh.

      But still the heart of India lives in its traditions and cultures. You can find such cuisines deep inside the cities.

      However Babru is very easy to make. You can have them anytime. And thank you dear for dropping by.
