I just picked the last of the heavily scented hedge roses.

With that still in my nose, I made ghee---and bubbling browning buttery bliss smells melded with the rose.

And on the back burner...sugar and water for hummingbird feed added a syrupy note.

One + one + one? Makes me shut my eyes and think of Mughal princesses....and what would any self-respecting Mughal princess think of smelling roses and syrup and butter/ghee?

GULAB JAMUN!

My favorite, and only home made (not frequently enough) Indian dessert is this confection of spicy, rosy, sweet delight. Little golden spheres made of dried milk and ghee are deep fried (in more ghee) and then soaked soft in a spicy syrup flavored with rose water!

I have diabetic guests coming and I am going to spend the morning experimenting with making this sugar free! I think if I use a sugar free syrup instead of making my own of honey, brown sugar and water, and spice it heavily at low, low heat, it may be sufficiently convincing.
Anyone want to experiment with me??Read more... )
