3. Laung-Latika


Bihar’s traditional dessert, laung-latika, is made during special occasions. Despite being similar to other stuffed foods, the Laung Lata’s Clove in the core of the flaky crust sets it different from the competition.

This treat is ideal for the chilly winters thanks to the illustrious stores close to the Patna Mosque.
