  • Add the deep fried Jamuns into the syrup and soak it minimum for three hour.Once it become double the size and soft,serve it.

My Notes:

  • Test the soda before you use if soda doesn’t work properly,you will not get the soft jamuns.
  • Mash the potato till it is soft otherwise you can grind it and use it.
  • No need to add water while kneading the dough because the moist in the potato is enough to make soft dough.
  • If you feel the dough is too moist then add a tsp of flour and then knead it.
  • Always fry the jamun in medium flame otherwise it won’t get fully cooked if you fry it in high flame.


Have a nice Day!!!
