Festive occasions seem incomplete without at least one mithai but sometimes we are so busy we do not have time to prepare anything complex.

The Bread Gulab Jamun is just right for such occasions. It gives the same results as traditional gulab jamun but is much easier and quicker.

Instead of the usual khoya based dough, the Bread Gulab Jamun is made of bread held together with milk. A dash of mixed nuts adds more josh to the jamuns giving them a rich taste and mouth-feel. Prepare the sugar syrup before you start deep-frying the bread-based jamuns. Once you fry them, put them directly into the syrup to get a nice, melt-in-the-mouth texture.

You can also try other Indian sweets like the Mohanthal and Rasgulla .

Tarla Dalal    Hi, Yes it has over soaked. This would happen because it is not the regular gulab jamun.
