  • Later, add 1 cup fine Ravai and keep stirring it until the Ravai absorbs all the milk.
  • Now cool the mixture and then knead it for at least 2 minutes, until the dough is smooth and soft.
  • And when the dough is still warm, make small ball sized dough and fry the Jamuns in a frying pan and your Gulab Jamun is ready!

Shahi Tukda


Shahi Tukda, which is royal dessert straight from the culinary utopia of Hyderabad, is one of the easiest dessert preparation.

  • Meanwhile, take four bread slices, remove the brown edges and cut the bread diagonally.
  • Now, on a low flame, deep fry the slices of bread evenly till they turn golden and crispy.
  • Then you can dip them in sugar syrup and Rabri; there you have your Shahi Tukda.

Palapazha Paayasam


It’s very easy to prepare a traditional dessert – Palapazha Payasam.

  • Take a pan, heat 2 tbsp of ghee and roast cashew nuts until it turns golden.
  • Transfer it to a bowl and keep aside.
