My Notes:

  • Make sure you roll the balls smoothly at the same time not too tight. Dont apply pressure while rolling else the center part will not get cooked and will be hard while eating.
  • Let the jamuns rest in the syrup for a while so that the syrup is well absorbed.
  • I grinded sugar coarsely to get fine texture.You can use fine sugar crystals if you have fir rolling over.
  • Even plain bread can be used but use unsalted bread for best results.
  • Make sure you keep in low flame while cooking the jamuns as it may get burnt easily.If the oil is too hot, then the jamuns may turn brown faster but it may not have cooked inside especially the center part.
  • Fry only till deep golden brown, not too dark.
  • I thought you could slightly reduce the sugar and water as I have more syrup than required.
