Gulab Jamun - Nanak
The term Gulab Jamun comes from the Persian gulab or "rose" referring to the rose-scented syrup and the Hindi jamun- a South Asian fruit with a similar size and shape to the dessert. It is an exotic mouthwatering delicacy. Gulabjamun is generally eaten warm so that its soft texture can be fully savored. The dessert is often served at festive occasions such as weddings, Diwali (the Indian festival of light), the Muslim festival of Eid and other religious celebrations. Nanak Gulabjamun is made from dough that is shaped into round balls which are fried in oil and then immersed in a hot sugar syrup.
