How to make GULAB JAMUN - The Complete Delicious Recipie
Gulab Jamun is a sweet dessert that is loved by every children and adult.
Gulab jamun was first prepared in medieval India, derived from a fritter that Persian-speaking invaders brought to India.The word "gulab" is derived from the Persian words gol (flower) and āb (water), referring to the rose water-scented syrup. "Jamun" or "jaman" is the Hindi-Urdu word for Syzygium jambolanum, an Indian fruit with a similar size and shape. The Arab dessert luqmat al-qadi is similar to gulab jamun, although it uses a completely different batter.
