Gulkand recipe/Rose Jam


Do you love eating paan, or have you ever tried one if not then I would suggest you to try. This is best for digestion, ayurveda recommends this for digestion and cooling effect on body.

Mostly all Indians love eating paan, some love it with beetel nuts while many, like me love sweet (meetha) paan.

Gulkand is the main ingredient used in paan, that is the flavour enhancer with some sugar coated fennel seeds, some mint balls. Making gulkand is super easy, which is going to blow your mind up, after checking out the recipe.

My garden is filled with rose plant, so thought of making some gulkand and preserving it.

Rose petals should be fresh and no dark spots have to be on them.
