Gulab jamun

Gulab jamun (gul-aab jaa-mun) is a popular Indian, Punjabi, and Bangladeshi sweet dish.

Ingredients

It is made of a khoya, dough, often including double cream and a little flour in a sugar syrup flavored with cardamom, rosewater or saffron. These days we use "Essence of Rose" instead of the olden days, when they used rose petals.

Preparation

The preparation of the dough is fast, but during frying, if there is too much flour, the balls tend to break. And when the dough is made into balls, they are squeezed thoroughly to avoid cracks. They are then boiled in oil, and soaked in sugar syrup.

Where and When it is Eaten

Gulab Jamun is most often eaten after dinner, and usually eaten at festivals or major celebrations, such as marriages and Diwali. (the Indian festival of light)
