The origin of the name Daraba has several theories. Some say that it was served in the Mughal court of Burhanpur and from ‘darbar’, the name ‘daraba’ was derived. Another theory is that ‘daraba’ is an off-hand term which refers to a pasty edible item, which is actually the texture of this product. A third theory is that in Kutchi language, ‘daraba’ means roasted – which is a part of the elaborate process to make this product, and hence the name. We like to believe that all 3 theories are legitimate as they all make sense! But we are also sure that this ladoo by any other name would taste as divine.
