Learn to make the most easiest and softest Gulab Jamuns! For the second day of Indian Desserts, I decided on Gulab Jamun. I had originally wanted to bake these because I wanted to club this theme along with Bakeathon. However I didn't find enough Indian dishes that were baked that will suit both events. I had to settle for just this and do some other theme.
Gulab Jamuns are my favorite sweets that I had always enjoyed at home. Amma makes it a point to make Gulab Jamun for all birthdays and Deepavalis. This is a mandatory dish on the menu. Nothing matched the taste that comes from homemade version, even though it was made from a ready made powder. Later for Indian Cooking Challenge, I had made the Gulab Jamun from scratch at home and everybody enjoyed it. I even made a Chocolate Gulab Jamun. Somehow I never got back to making it again at home.
