Anyone who takes their sugar cravings seriously in Pakistan has heard of Maha Jawed. She’s the pastry chef behind the Dark Chocolate Tart With Salted Caramel served at Karachi-based eatery Xander’s. And boy does that taste good!
Luckily for us Karachi folk, this Le Cordon Bleu graduate is working on another signature dessert: Gourmet donuts!
“I haven’t really been able to find a good doughnut in the city so far,” says Jawed. “So I’m experimenting with my own recipe.”
As soon as we caught sight of those delectable delights, we couldn’t order a box fast enough.
Did it check all the departments?
Looks? They’ve got the good looks, guys! The doughnuts looked gorgeous. Almost like one of those #foodporn posts of Instagram that you admire on screen, but have never really consumed in real life.
Taste? Super delicious when eaten hot but a little dry when cold.
Piece of advice? A little more crispiness would make all the difference.
The highlight? Toppings! They were great and not too overpowering!
