Hey Everyone, hope you had a great weekend and can you believe that we are just 2 weeks away from ‘Diwali’ – the Indian festival of lights & also one of the biggest Indian festival. It’s all about decorating your house and surroundings with colorful festive lights/candles/earthen pots, tons of food (especially sweets) and spreading the message of love n prosperity among friends and family. It’s one gala time and you cannot avoid the avalanche of sweets that hits the Indian market, different colors, texture and made with tons of ingredients packed in beautiful boxes. And there’s no way that you could avoid those sweets/desserts as they are seriously delicious and highly addictive.So to celebrate the occasion and keeping it light n quick, I’m making these ‘Gulab Jamun Dessert Parfait – Royal Diwali Treat’. I absolutely LOOOOVE Gulab Jamuns, they are these round sweet dumplings that are available in almost every Indian restaurant (worldwide) and is the most popular sold sweet everywhere. The parfait gives it this new, refreshing and luscious feel in every bite and ready in 15 minutes (makes 8 cups). Since, it’s a festive dessert, I’m taking it a notch higher by adding pistachio, saffron, honey and cream.I’m adding cream with yogurt to make it smooth and extra creamy however you can skip the cream part if need be and just make the whole parfait with yogurt. Just layer some gulab jamuns, nuts, saffron and decorate with some saffron-honey syrup on top. It’s so easy to make that you’d wonder why you haven’t tried it before and looks stunning too.Give this recipe a try this Diwali and enjoy the festival of light with your loved ones.
