Gulabi Gulab Jamun – With Love

Cooking with Rose Petals dates back to centuries. The simplest way to incorporate it in cooking is to use rose water or sun-dried rose petals. However, using fresh roses right from your own garden makes it extravagant. :) I love to steep the fresh scent of these roses in my desserts. To be precise…milk based desserts will be a right a choice. To prepare a rose flavored sugar syrup…bring the water to boiling and add sugar plus rose petals to it. Lower the heat and simmer for twenty minutes, perfect-aromatic syrup is ready in minutes. So, this is the basic for today’s recipe. You can always enrich the Jamun’s with ground rose petals or Gulkand. :) Unfurl your own imagination…I am positive, it would turn out great. :)




  • 1 cup khoya (solid milk)
  • 2 cups sugar syrup
  • rose water
  • 1 cup real rose petals
  • ghee for deep frying


  1. Prepare the khoya dough into smooth mass. Then, divide them into equal parts and shape them up into medium sized jamuns. (later it bulges to 2-3 fold when immersed in sugar syrup).
  2. Fry these in medium hot ghee until golden to reddish brown. Remove and leave it on the kitchen towel for a while.
  3. Add rose petals to the sugar syrup and warm it up a little. Now, add these fried jamuns to it and wait till it soaks completely.
  4. Serve chilled or warm as a dessert. Enjoy. :)
