Choco Gulab Jamun

Gulab Jamun was made popular by the Mughals in India,Pakistan,Sri Lanka,Nepal and Bangladesh. It is made of a dough consisting of khoya together with flour,rolled and then deep fried. Then soaked in sugar syrup flavored with cardamom seeds and rosewater, kewra or saffron.Kemal Pasha,a turkish Dessert like Jamun, is done  adding unsalted Cheese. I tried a sweet Choco variant of it. It turned out Yumm. U can try it using Jamun ready mix adding 2 tsp Cocoa Powder for 1 cup of Mix for an easy Dessert. U  can try other variations like adding unsalted cheese,dessicated coconut etc...Try this recipe at home. Enjoy Easy Desserts at home!. BonAppetit!.
