Gulab Jamun

My favorite part of any Indian meal is gulab jamun. I was relieved to find out the dessert I’ve devoured all these years outside of India is pretty much the same as it is in India. With food, there’s nothing more annoying than knowing exactly what you’re missing.

What is gulab jamun? It is delicious fried dumplings (so, flour and baking soda) made with thickened or reduced milk, soaked in cardamon and saffron-flavored sugar syrup. Frying the dumplings in ghee requires much finesse in order to brown the outsides just so.

    I love your pics and blogs, i would love to get into photography, what kind of camera do you recommend for me. I am an Indian living in CT, how did you enjoy your trip to India?

      Hi Anita, thanks for reading and for the kind words! I loved India. There was so much to see, the food was amazing and the culture was intriguing and wonderful. I hope to return soon. How do you like CT?

      Re photography, for a beginner, I would suggest buying whatever DSLR is within your budget (there are so many to choose from and the entry-level models are great), take a class to learn to shoot manually, then upgrade after you see how you like photography.If you aren’t going to shoot manually, you don’t need to get anything more than a basic point-and-shoot.
