  • Chocolate Gulab Jamun Method-4
    • Heat oil till its medium hot, add 2-3 tbsp ghee so that you get nice aroma. lower the flame and wait for a minute. then gently place the gulab jamuns in the oil.
    • Once they start to have tiny golden spots, keep on rotating them in the oil, so that the gulab jamuns are evenly browned.
    • Remove the gulab jamuns and then drain them on kitchen paper towels to remove excess oil.
    • Then place the hot gulab jamuns in the sugar syrup. Continue frying the gulab jamuns this way in batches.
    • When all the jamuns are placed in the sugar syrup, then keep the whole pan with the sugar syrup and gulab jamuns, on a low flame for a few minutes till the jamuns become soft.
    • Heating helps the gulab jamuns to absorb the syrup and become soft. the jamuns increase a bit in size. Don't over cook as then the jamuns break.
    • Serve Gulab Jamuns warm or at room temperature. You can also chill the gulab jamuns and serve them cold. Garnish the gulab jamuns with rose petals or almond or cashews. You can use any garnishing ideas of your choice!

     [Note: if the sugar syrup has impurities, then add milk and simmer. a layer of scum will be formed. remove this layer with a spoon]
