Gulab Jamun is a star dessert in any Indian festival .among all the desserts out there gulab jamun is always loved .It is traditionally prepared by deep frying the balls made out of milk solids and then soaked in Sugar Syrup .Dry fruits and saffron can be added to enhance the richness.
Mostly I used to prepare jamun with the readily available instant gulab jamun mix, however I have seen bread jamun’s in many blog hence I was tempted to try out this version when I had some milk bread available in home. It tasted awesome I would say. So this Diwali try this instant bread gulab jamun’s and gift your near and dear ones.
I have tried some more Diwali special sweets, so keep checking out this space for more Diwali Sweets and Snacks.
