The bright sun on a day in winter brings gleeful chuckle .You dare to sip a cup of tea at your balcony against the slow winter breeze while soaking up the sun.

Every season has it’s own mark.Winter is the time for comfort , an extra cup of coffee ..a little more of sleep in your cozy blanket..an extra woolen sweater .It’s the time when one enjoy some hot desserts too.Have you ever tasted a hot rasogolla ? A hot malpua with a dollop of rabdi or a plate of hot halwa. I know you must be in a state of euphoria..

A similar winter bliss is our customary “Carrot Pudding” (Gajar Halwa) that every Mom cooks as soon as carrot arrives in the market.I have taken this dessert to a level up by bringing a distinct royal flavor as well as look to it.I am sure once you try this you gonna like it more than your regular one.

Gulkand is dry rose petals cooked in sugar syrup.Easily available at store.
