This recipe is not my brain child, the credit goes to Ekta. In my last trip to India, I was invited by a friend of ours (Ekta) for lunch at her place in Pune. I was pleasantly surprised by food spread she had made for us and her food was scrumptious. When it came to dessert time, she offered Gulab Jamuns. Subsequently I got the idea to try out “recipe of chocolate gulab jamun” myself and make it my way.

  • You can knead the dough with luke warm milk instead of water. Remember to keep your dough really soft otherwise your Gulab jamun will come out harder.
  • You can skip using drinking chocolate and only can use cocoa powder, in that case just increase the quantity of latter to 2 tablespoon.
  • I used milk chocolate as stuffing, you can use any of your choice.
  • Always fry your gulab jamun on low temperature otherwise they will not cook properly to the core.
