We are going to get through making Gulab Jamun and Kothambir Vade. These recipes for Gudi Padwa Celebration are simply perfect and you won’t need anything else apart from these to complete your celebratory package.

Gulab Jamun Recipe: 

To begin with, let’s first get our resources from a grocery home delivery service nearby. These delivery services allow you to buy items at the comfort of your home. Buy the following items.

  1. 1 cup Maida (All Purpose Flour)
  2. 200 to 220 gms Khoya
  3. ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
  4. Ghee (or oil), for deep frying
  5. 3 to 4 Cardamom or ¼ tsp Cardamom powder
  6. 8 to 10 Saffron Strands
  7. 1 ½ cups sugar
  8. 2 ½ cups water

Method: 

  1. For preparing the sugar syrup, add sugar, cardamom powder and saffron in a deep pan. Next add water and bring the mixture to boil over high flame. Reduce flame to medium when you start seeing the sugar syrup coming to life (it is a little sticky). This takes about 10 - 15 minutes.
  2. For deep frying your gulab jamuns, add baking soda and ½ cup sifted maida to your mawa/khoya mix. Gently mix with a spoon. Once mixed knead to form a dough out of which you can create small balls of the mix. Deep fry them on a medium flame in ghee or oil, as preferred. Fry them until golden brown. Keep them aside.
  3. Now heat the sugar syrup for 3 to 4 minutes and add the gulab jamun mix in it to absorb the sweet flavour of the syrup.

Easy peasy! Your Gulab Jamun is ready.

Kothambir Vade Recipe:

Again, you can look out for a quick Grocery Delivery service or look for grocery home delivery near me on the internet to find one in your vicinity to purchase your materials.

Here’s what you need:

¼ cup peanut

1 tsp ginger, 1 tsp garlic

2 green chillies

1 to 2 tbsp water for grinding

2 cups coriander leaves

¼ tsp turmeric powder

¼ tsp red chilli powder

½ tsp cumin powder

½ tsp coriander powder

1 pinch of asafoetida (hing)

1 tbsp white sesame seeds

1 cup besan

½ tsp sugar (optional)

Salt (to taste)

½ cup Water (for batter)

Method: Heat a pan on medium flame and toss the peanuts in it. Stir to make the peanuts crunchy (brown-black in colour). Rub them and sift them to remove the brown-black flaky skin. Grind it into a crunchy coarse powder. Keep it aside.

Next, in a smaller grinder, add ginger, garlic and two green chilies. Add 1 to 2 tbsp. water to the same and grind to paste. Now, take 2 cups of coriander leaves and finely chop them. Once done, add all the mixtures in 1 cup besan and mix well to form a batter. Add salt to the mix and water as needed.

Next, steam the batter your just made in a deep pan using 1 to 2 cups water. Once done, you need to deep fry it in a greased / oiled pan. Then cut it into the shape you desire, and you are done!
