I am sure most of you have read Our Story in this blog where I wrote about my love story with AS. I have always said that I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life.
The day that he entered my world changed me in such a positive way. Life is beautiful now. I see the importance in every action that I take. Each moment is cherished.
We have been through the good and the bad times in life together and I have to admit he has been a pillar of strength in my life.
He knows me so well and makes sure I am happy. He makes me smile and laugh and I love those moments.
This morning I woke up as normal. AS and Chhori were still be in bed and I started getting ready to go to work. When I went to the kitchen to make breakfast, this was on our kitchen bench top, it just melted my heart.
I think it is the small moments like this that make life truly amazing.
Thank you very much AS. Chhori is so proud to have you as her father. You are simply amazing. We love you and thank you for everything. Thanks Sweetheart!

Lal Mohan is a sweet made from flour into balls and dipped in sugar syrup. It is called Gulab Jamun in India.
This is one of the dishes I had made for Tihar. I made it for the first time and it turned out to be quite yummy. It is one of the easiest sweets I have made.
AS, my brothers, my colleagues at work all loved it so I am sharing the recipe here for anyone who wants to try it.
1 Lal Mohan Mix (Gulab Jamun Mix)
- 1 kg Sugar
- Oil to fry
- Add around 250ml water to the content of the pack. I used Priya mix which was 500g. Check the pack for other brands.
- Mix it slowly until there are no lumps left. It will be very mushy and sticky but don’t worry. That is how it is supposed to be.
- Make sure you don’t knead the dough.
- Leave the dough for a while (5 – 10 mins). In this time make the sugar syrup.
- In a big container, add 5 cups of sugar and 5 cups of water. Let it heat for 10 -15 minutes on medium heat.
- Do not overheat as that will caramelize the sugar and we don’t want that.
- Back to the dough. Lightly coat your hands with some oil, take a bit of the dough and make small balls of about 1 inch or 1 ½ inches.
- Try to make all the dough into balls and leave them on the tray. Cover with a kitchen towel which is a bit damp.
- Heat some oil in a deep pan. The oil must be enough to cover the dough balls.
- To test the temperature of the oil, add a small ball. If the ball rises slowly to the surface from the bottom then the oil is ready.
- Add the balls and fry them very slowly under medium temperatures
- You have to constantly move the balls so it doesn’t stick and cooks all the way through and are brown evenly all around.
- Once the balls are brown, take them out of the pan and put them on a kitchen paper to soak the excess oil.
- Now drop the balls in the warm sugar syrup and leave it for an hour. Make sure you use a large container as these balls will expand as they absorb the syrup.
- Your Lal Mohan is ready. Enjoy !!!
