Gulab Jamun - Sweet Delicacy.

India's small donuts

A favorite delicacy during Divali ( or any special occasion).

This is a pretty good video - though I usually add a tablespoon of rosewater to the syrup along with one star anise, two cloves, and just a few saffron threads.

Ideally Khoya should be used, but milk powder is a good substitute if you can't get your hands on it.

2. Give it a try. Critical to let donuts cool first

Before tossing in syrup. And I've had fun with the syrup, once did a cherry blossom syrup. But the traditional way uses spices like green cardamon.

7. I can do dat! Playing and cleaning. 😤

For payment some o' those delish sweet puffs!

I have a slight germaphobic cleaning tendency to go after anything non-movable and movable, as in humans and petskis! 😆

Our first older home had the retro 'boomerang' design Formica countertops and I'd wash the dickens outta them. Got teased I'd scrub the design out! 😁

Not really that far gone, am I. Cleaning for me is therapy. Cathartic.

3. My favorite dessert !

Etymological trivia: "gulab" originally meant "rosewater", or more generally, "infusion", and gave rise to the English word "syrup" and the name of the mint julep.
