Gulab Jamun is easy to make dessert as it requires very few ingredients. It is made from mawa (khoya) or readymade gulab jamun mix. The balls made from khoya are deep-fried and dipped in sugar syrup flavoured with cardamom, saffron and rose water. The word ‘gulab’ in gulab jamun means rose and hence it is flavoured with rose water.
Generally, hot Gulab Jamuns can be had on their own. However, Gulab Jamuns can also be had with rabdi, vanilla ice cream or kulfi. The soft, spongy, syrupy Gulab Jamuns are relished by one and all.
