Baker Anita Jaisinghani marries French technique with South Indian flavors to whip up inspired pastries like chocolate chili cookies and an award-winning chai pie made with a biscuit-like crust and filled with chai caramel. Classic Indian desserts like sindhi ladoo (a doughy confection made with almonds, poppyseeds, cardamom and pistachios) can also be found among the dizzying array that the bakery puts out each morning at 7:00 within her restaurant Pondicheri.

Must-Try Item: Bake Lab’s lighter take on gulab jamun is a spiced donut dipped in rose cardamom syrup then rolled in white poppy seeds, pistachios, and finely chopped rose petals (available only on weekends). pondichericafe.com
