Gulkand is made using Chaitri Gulab, native pinkish roses sourced directly from Haldi Ghati in Rajasthan. Sweetened using Misri (Dhaagewali) and Raw Honey.
A rose petal preserve, sunbaked for over a month in earthen pots, as per the Ayurvedic ancient texts. The roses are of the ‘Chaitri’ variety, that grow only during the Chaitra month (as per the Hindu Calendar) of the year; and sourced directly from Haldi Ghati - a mountain pass in the Aravali range, Rajasthan. Sun-cooking ensures that the flavors develop and get concentrated gradually over time. It also helps preserve the natural therapeutic properties of the rose petals since these petals are extremely sensitive to heat.
Chaitri Rose Petals, Gulab Ark, Fennel Powder, Cardamom Powder, Misri and Raw Honey.
