Gulkand Macarons is a fusion of the Italian macaron and the Indian gulkand. Macaron is a sweet meringue-based confection made with egg whites, icing sugar, castor sugar, almond powder and food colouring. The macaron is said to have been introduced by the Italian chef of queen Catherine de Medici during the Renaissance.

Chef gives this mildly moist cookie an Indian twist and makes it with gulkand (a rose petal jam).

Chef Tejasvi’s to-die-for Gulkand Macarons are tangy, sweet, and crispy.
