Gulab Jamun Paratha

Gulab Jamun Parathas are parathas stuffed with crumbled gulab jamuns which is a typical Indian sweet . Coarsely ground nuts , cardamom and saffron are mixed to enhance the flavors of this delicious sweet paratha .

It is the 7 th day of the marathon and we are at the alphabet G under the theme Flatbreads and More. My initial plan was to make Gura ji Bussari which is a Sindhi version of Gud ka Paratha , but then I switched over to Gulab Jamun Paratha . The idea came from the Gulab Jamun Samosas that I had posted some time back . Also Gulab Jamun is such a versatile sweet , one can get so innovative with it . I have a Gulab Jamun Kulfi which is heavenly , then a Gulab Jamun Kheer , I assure you you will lick of that kheer bowl and then a Carrot and Gulab Jamun terrine which is one of my favourite and signature dishes .

Coming back to the Gulab Jamun Paratha , I made the rotis and then spread the stuffing between these rotis , finally roasted it with ghee . The dough for the rotis is kneaded with equal proportions of milk and water which makes the paratha soft and more rich . One has to squeeze out the juice from these jamuns and crumble these . Coarsely ground nuts help to reduce the moisture and extra sweetness from the juicy jamuns , plus it adds on to the taste . The final paratha is a delicious treat for all those who have a sweet tooth . Go ahead and try this Paratha , I assure you , you will love it .
