9. Badam Peda

Badam Peda is as rich as a sweet can get. A special process of curdling almond paste with khoya turns it into a richly textured product, which when flavoured with cardamom becomes an intensely aromatic dessert that nobody can resist. While the aromatic fragrance and intense flavour make it a hit with adults, the amazing texture and succulent mouth-feel make it popular with kids.

Hey Guys.. I have already shared Instant Jalebi before and now I am here to share my mom’s recipe of Instant Gulab Jamun. Gulab Jamun are everyone’s favorite and mine too. I asked my mom to make gulab jamun and she made it but the main thing she made it in no time. I always wanted to make gulab jamun by my own but the recipe of making gulab jamun has been very time taking and hard for me so I have always placed gulab jamun in my recipe list for the next time. But my super mom taught me to make gulab jamun in no time..she just made them without any extra effort and I loved the recipe and I know once you made them you all will love it too 🙂
