  1. I used to have plain varyali but they stick to our teeth so dont have them. I used to have all the other things with it – like badam, kaju, chaar magaz etc. in Mumbai ages ago when I went on a visit there.

    By the way, in which State r u?

    I must say u r doing a good/great job for all of us. My hats off to u!

  2. Yes, thats exactly what the jimmies look like. Of course they are made entirely of chocolate.

    I like Varyali, have you had roasted varyali? I roast raw varyali, add salt and enjoy them.

  3. Thanks Rita for your sweet explaination of Jimmies. I understand, v get them in Karachi, Pakistan too. I think they r multicoloured tiny varyali like things (sprinkles) that r put on cup cakes also

  4. Jimmy or Jimmies are little bits of chocolate sprinkles. We get them in US, probably you will find them in the icecream, cakes aisle. So I put the melted chocolate on the strawberries and dip them into the jimmies. See the photo, some are coated with jimmies and some without.
