• 25g almonds

• 45g clarified butter/ghee, melted, cooled

• Saffron cheesecake filling

• 200g cream, Amul fresh

• 1.5 tbsp cornstarch

• 75g white chocolate, chopped

Procedure

• Gently pour over the gulab jamuns on the base. Return to the oven and bake for an hour 15 minutes. Leave to cool in the oven, then refrigerate overnight to set. Demold gently onto a serving platter and top with gulab jamuns, pistachio slivers and rose petals.
