  • Turn the heat off and add the rose syrup and lemon juice and mix well.
  • That’s it the jelly base is done. Pour it your favorite cups/molds or plain glass vessel and let it set. I kept in the refrigerator.
  • If you want to pour in a plastic cups like this, let it become luke warm.
  • I let it sit for unto 4 to 5 hours. Yummy home made rose syrup jelly is ready.


Any fruit juice like black currant, pomegranate, mango can be added to prepared corresponding flavors.
Lemon juice is optional. But we like the sweet and sour taste.
Adjust the sugar and syrup according to your preference.
Instead of china grass, agar agar powder can be used.
