Classic Indian dessert, where Gulab ]amuns combine with a creamy Rabri  makes  a  tasty  combination Zauq-e-Shahi or Jowke Shahi, as the name says so is truly a Shahi, rich, aromatic Indian classic sweet delicacy. Small sized golden gulab jamuns floating in creamy, sweet saffron flavored rabdi or rabri garnished with pistachio and almond silvers is what a sweet tooth person would crave for. Whenever we come across people talking of festival, function, parties and sweets, gulab jamun is the first all-time favorite that everybody will desire to eat.

Rabri is a popular north Indian sweet dessert which is thick condensed milk based dish made by boiling milk over slow flame for a long time until it becomes thick and changes its color to pinkish. Sugar and nuts are added to enhance the flavor. You could also add saffron which will give a very refreshing and pleasing color. Flavored rabri is rich and aromatic, very exotic to taste. It is often served chilled as a dessert.
