Many years ago I met this young lady in Los Angeles, California and she brought this dessert to the ‘pot luck’ at my brother’s house. It has all the taste of a real deep fried and dipped in sugar syrup Gulab Jamun and probably the same amount of calories per bite, but it is definitely easier to make and will be the most talked about dish on the table! This has just been re-named by my bahu who makes it regularly.
