“Gulab jamun” -  a very tasty Indian dessert, In northern India people say “Gulabjamun” and in Eastern India, like bengal people say “Pantua” or kalojam etc., I think most of the people who tasted it once became fan of it, like me. The day when I made this, I was eager to eat “Gulabjamun” but because sweet shops are far from our house, I felt very lazy to go and buy Gulabjamuns. So, I decided to make some in our house. I had seen some bread pieces in freezer, I had arranged all the ingredients and made this, because I had added coco powder in it, it was tastier and looked exactly like “Gulabjamun”.

 Ingredients :-

Bread – 1 whole Packet(10-12 pieces)

All purpose flour - 2 tbsp

Milk – ½ liter

Coco powder - 100 grams

Sugar - 400 grams

Water - ½ liter

Coconut crumbs - For garnishing 

Method :-
