With Eid preparations underway last week, my Mother in law and I were hard at work making traditional Indian sweets and savouries to serve to family and friends to celebrate Eid-Ul-Fitr.
As she was preparing the mixture for her extremely popular Gulab Jamun, I had a bright idea! Why not colour them to match my Eid colour scheme?!
Now traditionally, Gulab Jamuns are a sweet milk based dumpling fried in oil or Ghee, and then soaked in a sugar syrup. They are usually brown in colour, similar to the one pictured below:
I decided that in order for my colours to ‘pop’ I could colour the coconut and Gulab Jamun mixture to match my theme.
My colour scheme for Eid this year (as with other years) was chosen by my husband, who is always super excited and proud of himself when people comment on the gorgeous colour choice 😂. The colours he chose for 2016 were, purple teal and gold. The pictures below were taken while Eid preps were underway, and aren’t as clear as I would have liked, however, you can still get a good idea as to how I achieved the final look 😊. Here’s #howididit:
1) Colour coconut to match colour scheme.
3) Roll the mixture as per the images below or a bit neater 😝
6) Roll the soaked Gulab Jamun into the coloured coconut quickly.
I hope you have enjoyed this post:) If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on Facebook messenger, or by email : [email protected]
Don’t forget to like and share this idea with anyone that you think would enjoy it!
