Rose Berry Ladoo

Be it any festival we women always have more to do. Be it the cooking for the religious festivities, the guests or everything that comes along with it. All this calls for energy. And lots of it. For Diwali, we do make lots of sweets. But when we are in the thick of it, eating those actually cause a sugar crash and make us sleepy. But not these. They are made with ingredients that will give you sustainable energy and in the spirit of Diwali, filled with the most delicious Strawberry and Raspberry Preserve from The Gourmet Jar. It’s delicious, filling and super healthy. If you don’t have rose petals, roll them in coconut or some crushed nuts. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

The preserve itself is almost jelly like. It’s made with organic ingredients and so pure tasting, it’s amazing. Preserves generally have a host of preservatives and artificial flavourings. But The Gourmet Jar preserves are made with quality ingredients, that i know are good for me and my kids. I have made use of their Almond Honey that I used in Almond Honey Cookies . You didn’t think I’d make you buy a bottle of something just for one recipe, did you ?? : )

Hi. I am Subalakshmi Sundar. The face behind The Petit Bite. People gathered around a table, good food, great company and fun conversations are the things that make me the happiest. This blog is an attempt to share one part of that with all of you. Great Food. Indian palate is going through a huge culinary journey right now. We are rooted in traditions but want to explore the world cuisines as well. That's what I enjoy the most. A slight Indian twist given to world recipes to suit our palate. You will find easy recipes for busy days, slightly long recipes for days when cooking is therapy and recipes that take time to come together when you want to immerse yourself in to the fine art of cooking. Whatever recipe you choose, I hope it's a pleasure to cook and to eat. Do tag me on Instagram or facebook if you try any. Nothing makes me happier. Happy cooking, y'all.. Much Love, S.
