Gulab Jamun, similar to dumpling very famous and common sweet in sub-continent. Basically milk solids which is known as khoya are kneaded into a dough, sometimes with a flour, and then shaped into small balls and deep fried at a low temperature. The balls are then soaked in a light sugar syrup flavored with green cardamom and rosewaterkewra or saffron
