Rosewater & Coconut Ghas

Milk based desserts are very popular all over the wold in Ramadan as it’s cooling for our stomachs after a long days fast. Today I made Ghas for after Tarawee Tea, Ghas is a Indian dessert made by boiling milk with agar agar powder and mixing cream, cardamom powder and additional flavourings.

Today I added coconut and rosewater to the traditional recipe and garnished with saffron pashmak, rose petals, and edible gold leaf.

I have shared the recipe below for you to try
