The district of Khushab which is situated in the province of Punjab, Pakistan is famous for its diverse geography. Khushab is the land of mountains, deserts and lush green valley of Soon Skeaser. Khushab has also some other phenomenal features like Khabeki Lake , Uchali Lake and many festivals. But we’ll tell you about the traditional sweet dish of Khushab which is known as “Dhodha”. Historically the delightful Dhodha is associated with a Hindu wrestler Hans Raj who invented it as healthy and energy diet. But unlike many other energy diets, Dhodha was full of taste, so he decided to sell it on commercial basis.
After the partition of Indo-Pak in 1947, Hans Raj moved to India with his family but he gifted the recipe of Dhodha to the sweet-makers of Khushab. They added many other ingredients and dry fruit items and thus Dhodha was become a toothsome and traditional food item of Khushab. Dhodha, the traditional sweet of Khushab is not only served in many festive occasions of Khushab, but this is also purchased by the visitors for their families as the symbol of the pride and culture of Khushab.
