If there are any lams should be, then you’ll find the feel of the gulab jamun not so good. The bits and pieces of Mava or paneer will provide a bite within the mouth once you have the gulab jamun. they will not be smooth.
Mix well. Add milk (for softness) and gather together to make a dough with milk.
Just gently mix.
If you’re unable to make balls make to fast or if the mixture appears dry, then add a couple of teaspoons of milk. if that dough becomes dry will the gulab jamun will become hard. Cover that dough and keep aside for 30 minutes. Make small balls from the dough. Cover the balls and keep aside.
