Introducing the Gulab Jamun Bonus Point

fullsizerender

Sunday 27th November 2016.

Soft, milky balls please – soaked in rose syrupy gouts!

Shamelessly eschewing the carrot halwa and the ras malai; baulking at the coffee kulfi. Fig kheer? Who gives a fig. It’s those gulab jamun orbs I crave, covet, desiderate.

Indian restaurants of the world, kindly accept the cold hard currency of a single bonus point wrapped in a plea and tied with a string of lusty invocations.

Take heart from Urban Choola, Rama’s Bridge and Two States – where the Swinging Blue Jeans, in gulab jamun delirium, fired up their addicts anthem, “Gulab Jamun Shake”. Duly rewarded with golden fixes of sodden, spongy balls.

Sing with me:

“For goodness sake
I got the gulab jamun shakes
Yeah, I got the shakes
I got the gulab jamun shakes

Ooh, I can’t sit still
With the gulab jamun shakes
Yeah, I get my thrill now
With the gulab jamun shakes
Yeah, it’s in the bowl
Ooh, the gulab jamun shake”

(Not as hooked on the shrimp moilee as these guys, but perhaps still worth mentioning their other hit: “Good Golly, Shrimp Moilee”)
