Sweet Potato Gulab Jamun/Shakarkandi Gulab Jamun/Sakkaravalli Kizhangu Jamun

Happy Diwali wishes to you all.. Have a safe and joyful festival!!!!

Indian cuisine is vast and varieties of sweets do exists especially during festival time. Obviously its not that much easy to make all the sweets which exists in Indian cuisine, though  many of those sweets are easy to make. Gulab jamun, this sweet is a star among the sweets. We Indians make often this sweet for the festival especially during Diwali.Even i have tried couple of jamuns and still i have few more to make. You can make this succulent,juicy and spongy jamuns with different methods, the easiest one is with store bought mix which is quite often in every Indian stores. If you want to make the traditional way by simmering the milk and making khoya out of it, which is later used for making the jamun dough asks for a long cooking process, else one more method of making jamuns is with milk powder, i have already tried these methods and even a jamun with potatoes, yes you read it rite, i have already prepared Aloo jamuns aka potato jamuns.
