Tips to get perfect gulab jamun

  1. While frying the Gulab jamuns keep the flame low otherwise you get the brown colour outside inside it will be raw
  2. Add exact amount of water not too much not less .In previous case you can't roll the balls in later case you get cracks while rolling .
  3. Jamun balls should be crack free otherwise it will just melt in the sugar syrup you can't find the full balls in the syrup.
  4. Sugar syrup and water added to the jamun mix will be mentioned in ready made mix box,so note it down and do it accordingly .
  5. Don't press the balls hard while rolling ,then  jamuns will be raw inside and will be heavy too (you can't cut it with spoon easily)
