From KidWorld Citizen:
Pairing a story with a recipe is always fun! Getting some kids to taste food that has different textures or flavors than they are used to can be a challenge. Enter Gulab Jamuns: A sweet treat to pair with a picture book.
We don’t want to exoticize food or push kids to think that food from other cultures is unappealing. If your kids are picky, it’s important to gently introduce them to new cuisines, and possibly choose dishes that resemble foods they are used to. (or you might have kids like my boys who will literally try anything and everything!) These gulab jamuns are a fantastic choice.
Who wouldn’t like to try a dessert of fried dough in sugar? I think after reading the picture book, and making the gulab jamuns recipe themselves, even the most discerning kids will have fun tasting the sweets!
