Gulab Jamun and Murukku

Tip's for Perfect Gulab Jamun's:

1. The Dough for Gulab Jamun should not be so hard or loose. so exactly follow the measure for water to mix with the flour as per the Packet instructions.

2. The ball's should be immediately fried in medium heated oil in a medium flame.
 So while preparing the dough, heat oil in a pan and also prepare the sugar syrup by the other side.
3. Add Sufficient Oil to the pan for frying. After Frying them, just get them off on a tissue paper. let them cool for a minute, before they are dropped in the hot sugar syrup.

4. The Sugar Syrup consistency should also be perfect, for the gulab jamun's else the sugar get's dried and makes the jamun a dry jamun. so if the packet instruction's states you to boil the sugar water for 15 minute's, do that and keep checking the consistency. the consistency is a before stage of single string consistency.
also dont reduce the sugar quantity, else you will endup with very less sugar syrup.

5. Just put some Saffron strands and crushed Cardamon on the sugar syrup, to get a nice aroma.

And serve them with grated Badam slices for a pefect look.
