1. Gulab Nut, The Bombay Canteen
The rum-soaked gulab jamun in the shape of a donut is all what you want to finish your meal with at The Bombay Canteen! The Bombay Canteen in Kamala Mills compound has a vast and interesting selection of desserts. Our pick here being Gulab Nut. Gulab Nut is Bombay Canteen’s take on our traditional Gulab Jamun & it’s alcoholic!
“Kyuki haan! haan! Main alcoholic hu! Boozy Gulab Nut is a take on baba au rhum. It is a small yeast cake saturated in syrup made with hard liquor, usually rum. This super interesting version of our Gulab Jamun is almost 5 times the size of normal gulab jamun and is a – donut-shaped gulab jamun fried in ghee and then soaked in Old Monk, giving it a sweet rum flavour. Served with pista cream, we all love when the Gulab Nut kicks it in the end.
