Gulab Jamun

An Indian classic and popular dish, Gulab Jamun is a dessert of Bengali origin. In Hindi, gulab means rose and jamun means a brownish purple fruit. These rose flavored brown dumplings are made from khoya (reduced milk). These balls are deep fried and soaked in warm rose flavored sugar syrup. Traditionally, shaved batti khoya, maida (all purpose flour) and whole milk are used to make the Gulab Jamuns. They are absolutely delicious. These balls can be stuffed with saffron, pistachio nuts or green cardamom powder. They are served warm or at room temperature. They are available in the Indian grocery stores.
