Notes

You can use 1-2 tsp of cardamom powder instead of using whole ones.

Don't knead the dough too much as it makes the jamun hard.

I didn't use any water or milk to knead the dough. You can use if mixture is dry.

Gently roll the balls without any cracks.

Fry in medium to low flame as otherwise jamun will become darker and not cooked inside.

Sugar syrup should be warm and not too hot while adding gulab jamun. Gulab jamun should not be too hot too.

You can add nuts for garnish.

You can add rose essence to sugar syrup for flavor.

Don't boil the sugar syrup for too long.
