Gulkand gulab jamun, when you want to make the gulab jamun extra special. If you have gulkand, you can try this simple twist to the regular gulab jamun.
I loved makkan peda, which is gulab jamun stuffed with dry fruits and nuts, so when I somehow found this idea of stuffing gulkand in jamun while browsing, I thought it should go well. As we make gulab jamun without any gulab in it most of the time, this is very nice add. I love rose flavour a lot. My mom have tried adding rose water in jamun syrup when I was a kid. Except me, no one liked at home, the addition of rose flavour to gulab jamun. Everyone are used to the cardamom flavoured syrup at our home. Same thing my MIL told, no one liked jamun with rose flavour at her place too. Gulab jamun is a amily favorite sweet at my in law’s place. So the would never let experiment with their regular trademark recipe.
