Jannat-e-Gulab

BM # 4  Day 1
The first day of the Blogging Marathon...for me the first time to partcipate.Thnx to  Srivalli....for hosting such a wonderful event.Hope u all like my recipes.......
The Indian desi gulab is a very fragnant rose variety.The petals retain their delicate fragrance even after drying,which makes it ideal to use for syrups and Indian sweets.
U get the dried petals in the market but somehow I prefer to dry them myself.It’s actually very simple…..get the roses,pull out the petals…make sure to discard all the extras…wipe with a damp cloth…….n spread them on a clean sheet in a corner .plz make sure no fan no sunlight!!u can forget looking at them for three days…n on the fourth day…just store them!!...yes it only takes max 4 days for this.
Coming to ‘jannate-e-gulab’…a very soothing, cooling n refreshing drink very simple to make ,with no preservatives….no added colour…..the pastel pink water with the aroma of cardamom n rose………..infact  gives u the ‘jannat’ feeling J..!

½ tsp…………….cardamom pwd
