As reported by Ruth, we recently visited Damavand Market in Fremont. I was drawn to the sweets counter, part of which is shown in this photo. To the left on top are the jalebi - thats the Indian name, I dont know what the Persians call this free-form fried pastry. Theyre $4.50/lb., and two of them, heavy with rosewater and honey syrup, weighed about half a pound.
I had no idea what the other items in the case might be. Help identifying these pastries and making recommendations on what to buy next would be much appreciated. Anyone?
