Muskmelon in combination with  coconut milk make this dish an extremely pleasing dessert when sweetened with jaggery and induced with cardamom flavor. Traditionally, coconut paste is used to make the rasayana.

Gulab Jamun - The basic ingredient for gulab jamun is khawa. Gulab jmun made with khawa has very soft texture and is a melt in mouth popular Indian sweet. I found gulab jamun fried in the ghee is tastier than oil fried.
