 An original recipe by Sunny Tripathy

SERVES           PREP TIME           COOK TIME

     3-4                        5 min.                        10 min.


1 box of Gulab Jaman Mix

¾ cup water 

1-2 teaspoons of My Mama's Ghee 

1 egg (optional for pancake)

¾ cup milk (optional for pancake)

½ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional for pancake)

½ teaspoon sugar

3 cups of water



  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix gulab jamun mix and water until there is a pancake batter consistency. Add other optional ingredients.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix: water, rose water, sugar, and cardamom. 

  3. Heat a lightly ghee’d griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately ¼ cup for each pancake. Wait until batter is golden brown, then add another cup of batter. 

  4. For the syrup: Add the 3 cups of water, cardamom seeds, rose water, and sugar in a deep-sided pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiled, heat down and simmer for about 10 minutes until it thickens into a light, cordial-style syrup. Stir every now and then. Take off the heat, leave to cool, then taste and add more rose water if needed.
