There were Camel milk prepared artisanal single-origin chocolates that were present in varying sinfully seductive flavours. The dark chocolates that were enriched with nuts and coffee beans were especially irresistible. Truth be told, we had tasted camel milk during a visit to Bikaner some years back but not exactly fallen in love with it due to its slightly salty, mildly sour and sharp taste. But the bite this time did what the initial gulp couldn't. For centuries camel milk has been part...
