Sweet Potato GULAB JAMUN RECIPE WITHOUT MILK POWDER 

Sweet Potato Gulab JamunHow to make Sweet Potato Gulab Jamun– Here is step by step instructions with video….

My kids have been asking for Gulab Jamun lately, so I was super inspired to create an easy-to-make vegan version of the good old Indian dessert. “Gulab Jamun” translates to rose flavored berries. It’s a deep fried delicacy that’s served in a rose flavored sweet syrup. When your sweet tooth kicks in after meal, you can just grab a bowl of chilled sweet potato gulab jamuns with its syrup or drop a dollop of vegan vanilla ice cream on it. You cannot go wrong with a dessert like Gulab Jamun. I have also tried it with Carrot Halwa and it was simply delicious.

Sweet potatoes offer the fluffy texture while the flour binds them together to get the perfect deep fried jamuns that will leave you longing for more. The taste is very close to conventional gulab jamuns and everyone in the house gave it a thumbs up. I even had to make another batch because they asked for more. 🙂 Some of the lessons I learned in this process is to be very careful with the flour. A tad more and the jamuns tend to harden. It is also important not to over cook the sweet potatoes. If they get too soggy, then the dough would not bind like you want it to. I am hoping my quick video will give you a good idea of what I am talking about.
