Gulqand is a luxurious sun-cooked preserve of Damask rose petals that are sun-dried over 29 days! Laborious but sweet is the effort of this traditional ingredient. Gul means flower in Urdu and in Sanskrit, the term Phool or Pushpa means flower; whereas qand means sweet in Persian.
It is believed to possess cooling & calming properties, which is why it has been traditionally associated with regal recipes to create a wide range of desserts and bakery preparations to beat the summer heat. It has been a part of the Indian household for centuries together, but with the changing times, it’s lost its sheen because of the effort it takes to make it.
Ayurvedic texts which can be traced back to 900 B.C list Gulqand as a “Rasayana” which is Sanskrit for “tonic”; a tonic that helps in alleviating summer-specific health issues like sun-strokes, acidity, indigestion, lethargy, inflamed eyes, excessive perspiration. According to Ayurveda, rose petals help to balance the Pitta Dosha. Therefore, Gulqand is especially recommended to enjoy on “hot days” or whenever Pitta is increased.
For the health-conscious, this beautiful ingredient is a naturally rich source of antioxidants, making it a natural detoxifier.
