Gulab Jamun

If Chicken Tikka Masala (or as some might say, Butter Chicken) is the king of Indian curries, then Gulab Jamun is the king of Indian deserts.

Gulab Jamun holds a very beloved stance in the large family of Indian desserts. This popularity stems from its simple yet marvelous construction: little, fried balls of a milk-based dough that are soaked in a syrup scented with green cardamom, saffron, rose water, and other spices and served warm or at room temperature. The floral, fruity quality of the syrup lends the desert a decadent and irrestible fragrance.’Gulab Jamun’ literally translates to ‘rose water’ and ‘black plum’ (a type of Indian fruit).
