Kala Jamun is an exquisite and popular Indian dessert that is served during festivals. It is quite similar to the popular Gulab Jamun - the only difference being their colour. Gulab Jamuns are deep-fried golden coloured balls whereas Kala Jamuns are deep-fried dark coloured stuffed balls. The dark colour is attained by frying the jamuns on a low flame for a few minutes.
Kala Jamuns are stuffed with a mixture of pistachios, almonds and khoya. They are then deep-fried till they attain a dark colour and then are left to soak in warm saffron and cardamom infused sugar syrup for at least 2-3 hours.
Kala Jamun is a soft, tender and melt in mouth dessert that is simply irresistible.
