Dry Gulab Jamun/Dry Jamun

We are entering the second week of Blogging Marathon#61 and I will be sharing some Indian Mithai/Sweets.
When I was thinking some sweet recipes for the theme so many things came in  mind.But ended up in making the simple ones.
This sweet is very popular in a sweet shop called Bombay Sweets in my hometown and my kids love this sweet a lot.I bring 2-3 kgs of this sweet from my India trip every time.
I make this sweet also often for kids and parties,but never had a chance to post.Finally I made it for this theme .Off to the recipe..............................

  • Store it in an air tight container.

    • The color of the jamun is slightly in the darker side.
    • The sugar available here is in a finely granulated so used it as such.If you are using coarser one ,pulse it in the blender.
