Kaala Jamoon

Ending this weeks Marathon with a sweet dish Kaala Jamun. Kids love sweets and there is no party without sweet treats.  This is one of the Indian Sweet dish usually made in the southern part of India .Kaala Jamun is a popular cheese based sweet like Gulab Jamun. This is made exactly the same way we make Gulab Jamun but this is double fried to get a nice dark black color.

We need:

Gulab Jamun Mix 1pkt
Sugar 2cups
Water 11/2 cup
Elachi 6 crushed
Saffron pinch
Oil to deep fry
Green color pinch


Mix Gulab jamoon mix with little water at a time.
In 1/4 part of the mixed dough add color and 1spoon sugar.
Now make small balls of the colored dough.
Also make little bigger balls with rest of the dough.
Now fill the small colored ball into the bigger ball and make a ball again or what ever shape u want it to be.
In a pan add sugar and water and boil to make sugar syrup.
Add saffron and also crushed elachi to the syrup to boil.
This gives nice color and also nice flavor.
Now deep fry all the jamoons till brown and keep aside.
After 3 minutes fry the Jamoons again till dark brown color and immediately add the sugar syrup.
Let it rest for 1 hr so that the jamoons become soft from inside and also outside.
Remove from syrup and serve .

Unlike the gulam Jamoons these kaala jamoons are not served with the syrup.
 Once if you think the jamoons have soaked completely in syrup remove and store in another container.
