Kala jamun or Kala Jam is one of the most loved sweets. You can call it as the king of sweets.It is black in color hence the name.Both gulab jamun and Kala Jaam are rich and syrup laden sweets.Somehow donuts always reminds me of them.Hot gulab jamun with cold ice cream is superb.This combination is pretty popular in wedding menu.Some people will just gorge on the chaat counter and sweet one.
This is however a healthier version.Can you guess how? We try to make it healthy although it is still fried 🙂
Well, there is no maida or plain flour in it.We make it from a surprise vegetable.You gotta make it to understand that there is no change in taste.Super tasty,rich and yummy.You can also stuff it with nuts if you like.However,this version is a nut-free one.
Yes so you can actually eat it during fasting.It is totally gluten-free. It does have milk powder and paneer in it, to give it that color.People also make vegan versions but that is for another post.For now, I sign off on this Diwali delight on the gluten-free one.
