Yay!! I made to my 50th post....

First of all...i want to Thank You each and everyone who visits my blog ,go through my recipes and leaving wonderful comments. These comments are making me create more recipes. My heartest thanks to all of you.THANK YOU.

Starting a blog really did change something in me.I am a homemaker and making normal cooking in day to day to life.But after starting this blog,i started trying new recipes from other blog.Starting to make more healthy meals and i am happy with this and my family.

For this 50th post i am giving you a sweet recipe which is... Gulab Jamun.Yes most loved by all ,
Gulab Jamun... loved by elders to kids...I made this Gulab Jamun and also made a Black Forrest Cake for my lil one's Birthday last weekend.

I had planned to make a cake, my hubby asked me to make another indian sweet.Every time i make,i do with MTR Gulab Jamun mix,but this time i made fully homemade.Like i said,im trying new thing.For homemade Gulab Jamun recipe where did i go...ChefInYou.I love her blog and also those lovely picture.I found her recipe of making Khova and also Gulab Jamun,  made this yummy Gulab Jamun.It came out really good and tasted yummy too....You can find step by step picture in Chefinyou(Gulab Jamun)

Make your own khova when you are baking or doing some cooking,as this takes around 2 to 2.30 hours.You cant leave this as you need to stir contionously to become thick and finally khoya.

To Make Khova.

Milk : 1.5 litres(full fat)

In a Non-stick pan,bring milk to boil.when it boils simmer to low to medium and keep stirring.Once in a while keep stirring until it becomes thick and becomes khoya.Store in refridgerater.It stays good for 1 week.I made this before night and used the next day to make Jamuns.

For Gulab Jamun:
Khova : 1.5cup
Maida/AP flour :1cup
