One of the best Indian sweets without a doubt is gulab jamun. India is a land of festivals and colorful culture. Khoya gulab jamun is mostly made on all auspicious occasions. The soft spongy texture and simplicity of the recipe ensures it has a top spot of your favorite sweets list. However, for diabetics and calorie conscious folks, it is better to replace the sugar with healthier options.

Health Benefits

  1. Khoya has the same benefit as that of milk. Just like any other dairy product, khoya is very good for strengthening the bones and teeth as it is rich in calcium.
  2. Presence of riboflavin makes khoya a vital source of vitamin B. Hence, it is good for a healthy immune system, maintaining energy, and healthy hair and skin.
  3. It also has a good source of vitamin D and vitamin K that prevent the blood clot. Milk products are helpful for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and can also prevent a heart attack.
