Gulab Jamuns wit a twist

Now traditionally we make gulab jamuns out of a packet or using flour.

This is the invention of a bored mother and daughter who had no idea how to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon.

What you need:

Bread-10 slices

Milk-50 ml (just an estimate-to make the dough)

Salt -a pinch

Oil for deep frying

Cardamom powder- 1-2 tsp

Rose essence-a few drops

Sugar-1 cup + 1 tbsp

Water- 2 cups

What do you do:

Dissolve sugar in the water . Add cardamom powder and boil till it reaches a syrupy consistency. Add the essence and take off the fire.

Make a dough with bread, milk, salt and 1 tbsp sugar. Make little balls and deep fry them in oil till brown and crisp. Drop them while hot into the sugar syrup. Serve hot or cold

The lighter side-Thursday Rally-Week 33

This poem was written for my friend who was feeling low to cheer her up…its for  fun….so if someone reading this is offended, I’m really sorry. its not my intention to hurt anyone…

For the others enjoy and did I miss something????

Men…they live amongst us

The creepy guy

Who lives down the block

The night show host

Who just loves to talk

The punk with the funky ‘do’

The cool jock

You want to hang on to

The uber smart nerd

Who’ll just blow your mind

The secret crush

You seek at the corner of your eye

The entertainer

Who tickles your funny bone

The incredibly shy

The one with the wandering eye

The fiery volcano

You’d better run for the roof

The vengeful kind

Who you’d better beware

The egoistic jerk

What more is to say

The boy next door

The one you think you know

The charming thief

Who’ll make you swoon

To his honeyed tones

The super sweet guy

Who you shouldn’t let go

The silent and strong hunk

For whom you go to movies for

And then the Zen

Just around the bend

Oh these men

What would we do with

And without them!!!
