In the spirit of writing about Holi, the Festival of Colors in India, I will also be frying up some Gulab Jamun. “This delicious dessert consists of dumplings traditionally made of thickened or reduced milk, soaked in rose flavored sugar syrup. It gets its name from two words: Gulab which means rose (for the rose flavored syrup) and Jamun which is a kind of deep purple colored Indian berry (the cooked dumplings are dark brown in colour). Serve Gulab Jamun warm or at room temprature; by itself or topped with ice cream” (Sarkar, “Gulab Jamun”). Below I have posted a video with instructions on how to create this amazing dessert! This dessert is primarily eaten during events such as Holi and Diwali!
