Notes
important Things to Remember:
1. Always check the expiry date while buying it from the store.
2. Also, check the measurement given at the back of the pack if you are using gits Instant gulab jamun mix then check the cup measurement that I have mentioned above.
3. I made big balls so got around 12 jamuns. It's according to you how big or small you are making it.
4. For soft juicy gulab jamuns, both the sugar syrup and fried gulab jamun should be hot, it should not be either cool or warm.
5. If the sugar syrup isn't enough also the jamuns will not get doubled in size.
6. If the dough is very tight, then crackle will happen and also roll it gently.
