Gulab Jamoon - A Melt in the Mouth Dessert


Gulab Jamoon  
                   A Melt in the Mouth Dessert

Well, today is a very special day….My cute little princess Aish joins her school. She is 2 ½ yrs old and today is her first day to school. 
  To enjoy this special occasion, we prepared her favorite sweet Gulab Jamun. It came absolutely delicious and melted in mouth …This recipe I got from my North Indian Friend, which is very popular in North India. The speciality is its soft and fluffy taste soaked in sugar syrup.

Dear Friends, If you are the sweet lovers, then this is the recipe for you. Enjoy this Indian speciality and let me know what you think ….:)

  7. Lower the flame and fry till it turns golden .
  8. Add the fried golden jamuns into the warm sugar syrup.

  53. Jay I have tried making Jamun with milk powder and maida by sprinkling water to make the dough...I never used milk and butter.The jamun taste good but when added in sugar syrup it is not getting soaked and remains hard...Is it because of not adding baking soda?ur thoughts?Thanks in advance...
