Hi… I am here with an interesting recipe today, eggless gulkand Muffins.
Gulkand is nothing but rose petals jam and it is well known for its cooling properties and relieving tiredness. It has a refreshing pleasant fragrance. I like gulkand so much for its unique taste and smell. This can be added to many Indian desserts like barfi, laddoo for added flavor.I saw this recipe on food food tv show.These gulkand muffins are mildly sweet and perfect.Gulkand / Rose petal jam is used for this muffins and the aroma of the cake is wonderful.

As most of you may know gulkand is a rose preserve with many health benefits. It is natural coolant and you can use it in the summer season to cool us down.
