Eggless Rose Petal Jam & Cardamom Muffins

DSC_1167

We had a fabulous BM meet in February when around a dozen of us met in Delhi and had an absolute blast. I met some of my fellow marathoners for the first time and we got along like a house on fire. During that trip, we visited a spice market and picked up some spices and condiments, one of which was dried rose petals. Now, when I have something on hand, I am always eager to finish it up because I am perennially worried about forgetting about stuff and remembering only when it is too late. Most of my nightmares are about discovering a long lost ingredient after it’s expiry. 

So I was looking for recipes using dried rose petals and I landed on this rose petal jam / gulkand muffin recipe. It was so simple that I wanted to make it immediately. It had oats flour, cardamom an pistachios which convinced me of its flavour and aroma. But the recipe had egg and I was out of eggs. So I replaced that with some curds and the result was a soft, aromatic and delicious muffin. The daughter and husband gobbled up quite a few which is the intended goal anyway.
