Though I don’t drink coffee I do love the aroma of fresh ground coffee powder. Btw my hubby starts his day with a strong cup of coffee ☕️ <though he drinks only 1 cup a day, he likes it real strong>. All these days I was using the instant coffee powder. But when ever I crossed the – coffee day’s fresh & ground store, I was very much temped to buy it and moreover fresh ground coffee powder can be bought unpacked, for those who aren’t aware of, I am very much inspired by Bea Johnson the pioneer of zerowaste movement, author & founder of zerowastehome,..<Btw even while buying instant coffee powder I always used to opt for the ones packed in glass jars and reuse them later as spice jars and now I don’t need more as my spice rack is full.>

Gulab jamun is a very familiar delicious Indian dessert, consisting of dumplings, traditionally made from solidified milk / khoya, mixed with flour and deep-fried in ghee to golden brown colour and then soaked in cardamom-scented sugar syrup.
