Delicious homemade gulab jamuns

Gulab jamun is very famous Indian dessert made with milk solid and sugar syrup. The name ‘Gulab’ means rose and ‘jamun’ is berry which is small cherry sized balls is dipped in rose syrup. But usually we use saffron and cardamom in sugar syrup.

I used to make gulab jamun with the mix available in the market. But for this Onam vacation my parents came to Bangalore. My dad who is a great motivator of my site and who is also interested in making desserts like Badusha, cakes etc… He asked me “Do you have Gulab jamun recipe in your site?” I said “No”. He knows that I am lazy to make these complicated dishes :D. If it is available in the market why should I take the risk? I would have thought only that way. He said “Come lets make it. I will give you the recipe. It is very easy”. He had no plan to leave me. Then we together prepared Gulab jamun. It came out very well everybody liked it.

Hope you all will like this gulab jamun recipe. Please try it out and let me know how it turned out for you.
