Spice Up Your Life Part III: Janani Sweets, Homebush

We'd stuffed our bags with spices, we'd stuffed our stomachs with lunch and now it was time to stuff the emergency stomach with dessert.

The tiny takeaway section of Janani seemed to have a constant queue of locals. We patiently waited our turn before squeezing our way in, oohing at the various goodies, and emerging with far too much sugar for our own good.

Gulab jamun

Milk toffees

Milk toffees

Laden down with spices, chutneys, snacks and now dessert, Pinkcocoa and I bid farewell to Saffron, thanking her profusely for her expert advice and knowledge, and made our way back to the train station.

I had picked up one of these crescent-shaped dumplings and couldn't resist tearing into it on the train on the way home. Half for me, half for Pinkcocoa, we cursed the constant swaying of the train as our cross-section photos ended up constantly blurry.

I still have no idea what it was called, or exactly what was in it, but it was nutty and spicy, rich with hints of cardamon, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Bade farewell to Pinkcocoa as we parted separate ways, and set up the dessert smorgasboard at home later that evening:

The gulab jamun was sweet and syrupy, the milk toffees were dense, rich and crumbly. The green one was pistachio (I think), and the brown was actually chocolate!

All sweet. All good.
