Delicious Goolab Jamun ready to be eaten
This sweet, tasty, finger shaped delicacy is also known as Goolab Jamboo. It is a very rich and similar to a doughnut. This sweetmeat can be made in 45 minutes for the quantity in the recipe below. If you have friends or family to help it goes even quicker as there are a few steps involved. This takes a little more work than the previous sweetmeats.
Diabetics should exercise care and rely on your doctors advise about whether you can eat this rich dessert. Many of the ingredients are high in calories and includes, butter and sugar. Please consider using more healthy alternatives to ingredients like sugar, butter and milk.
I am in the process of creating a recipe that is more health friendly. For now, check out this version of Baked Goolab Jamun With Yogurt.
Prepare all the utensils you will need ahead of time. For frying you will need 2 sets of slotted spoons as well as long handled spoons. One set is to help scoop fried goolab jamun onto slotted spoon. The other set is to remove the jamun from the syrup
Prepare a tray to receive the goolab jamun and layer the bottom with about a cup of dessicated coconut. As you continue to add jamun to the tray sprinkle a fresh dose of coconut. This prevents sticking and gives a nice appearance.

I hope you enjoy using this recipe. I have used this recipe several times with good results. Take care that you have the right temperature that will allow the jamun to cook without burning the outer side, yet cooking the inside. To test if the oil is the correct temperature, add a small piece of dough into the hot oil. If it begins to sizzle it is ready.
