gulab jamun a favourite among indian sweets, is prepared from khoya (see milk reduction) or milk powder mixed with a little flour, warm milk, and ghee. The dough is made into small balls which are deep fried gently in ghee, then lengthily soaked in rose-flavoured syrup (gulab means rose) before serving. They are also eaten hot.
