    Hello

    Sorry for the mundane question, but having not purchased canned galub jamun before, I'm not sure how long it will last once opened and put in a sealed, plastic container in my refrigerator.

    Does anybody here know?

    Thank you in advance
    Ishna

    how much did you buy anyway?? that you have to "Keep" ? In my case that would have to be a carton of about 20KG....and that would last 3 days max...ha ha so no need to keep any..ha ha. I LOVE Gulab jmauns..make some almost every fortnight or so...and also jalebis.....barfee/khoa...:whatzpointsing:

    Haha, well it was my first time buying from the indian shop and the didn't have what I wanted (it's a block of light brown stuff which looks like hairs or fibers or hessian pressed together and tastes like shortbread biscuits and has the light dissolving texture like fairy floss / cotton candy and I don't know what it's called!) but I didn't want to leave empty handed so i bought a can of pre-made gulab Jamum which is the only thing I recognized. It has about 15 ***** in it and i've already scoffed 3 of them (yum!!)... I should be ok if they'll last 5 or so days.

    Thanks for your help :)

    Thanks for telling me what it's called Gyani ji! Now I know what to ask for! I had my first taste of a little piece of it at this past Vaisakhi and think my family would really like it too. :interestedkudi:

    I like this thread because it is a happy thread. A group project in a way, as we figure something practical out together. Ishna enjoy these treats. Next time you go to the Indian store, come back with a fresh report.

    It is not hard at all. You just have to be patient and not too rough with the preparation.

    I always prefer to post from Manjula's Kitchen. She is a Jain (I am not one who has to have everything coming from Punjabi/Sikh lore). Her recipes and approach are foolproof and perfect for the beginner cook. Do what she says and you will have success.
