Why to add Gulkand in your diet? Uses & Benefits

We know the taste! We know the craving! We know about the sugar rush that is instilled in us after relishing one of the most preferred favours after a fingerlicious dinner! And we know that you know it too! You guessed it right; we are talking about Gulkand - Sun Cooked Damask Rose Petals.

Gulkand is a sweet preserve of rose petals, originating from India and our neighbouring country, Pakistan. The term that is derived from Persian; gul(rose) and qand(sugar/sweet) has been one of the authentic tastes that originate from the roots of our ancient history. Tasting gulkand can be equitable to experiencing heaven.

Let’s Prepare the ever-tasty Gulkand

It is prepared using special pink rose petals and is mixed with sugar. Rose petals are slow-cooked with sugar, which reduces the juices into a thick consistency. Preparation of Gulkand is also considered to be an art, with just an accurate amount of sugar and preservation of rose petals to achieve the arduous consistency.
