Jigarthanda | Badam Pisin/Almond Gum in Rose Milk

Ingredients to make Jigarthanda | Badam Pisin/Almond Gum in Rose Milk

  • Milk- 1\2 litre
  • sugar- 1\4 cup (adjust)
  • almond gum/Badam pisin- few rocks
  • rose essence- 2 tsp
  • Pink food colour- a pinch (avoid if the rose essence is pink in colour)
  • Ice cream- a scoop (I used rose flavoured, you can use vanilla flavoured as well)
  • Tutti fruity- few (for toppings) (optional)

How to make Jigarthanda | Badam Pisin/Almond Gum in Rose Milk

  1. Soak the badam pisin /almond gum in a large vessel with water. Let it stand over night, you will see how it has boomed the next morning. (Use very small gum rocks).
  2. Heat the milk in a pan and let it reduce to 3\4th of its volume. Add in the sugar and boil for a while. Then turn it off and add in the rose essence and color(if adding). Mix well. Let it cool and refrigerate till we use.
  3. Take a tall serving glass add in 2 or 3 tsp of soaked badam pisin (jelly one). Pour in the chilled rose milk and top it with a scoop of ice.
  4. Sprinkle some tutti fruity on top and serve.

My Tip:

1.You can also use Nannari syrup/Sarsaparilla syrup to make this instead of rose milk. In that case reduce the milk to half, add sugar and chill it. While serving add the soaked gum, nannari syrup, chilled milk and top it with ice cream. 2. Mostly street side pull-inns use rose syrup. 3.Soak small rock of the gum.
