2.While frying keep rotating the balls for even browning.
3.Kala jamoons are fried 2 times to get the dark brown colour.
4.Ghee gives a nice flavour to your jamoons so don't skip in adding few drops to the oil while frying.
5.Temperature of the oil should not be piping hot otherwise they will brown fast and the inside will be uncooked.Deep fry in medium low/high temperature.
6.Do not over crowd the kadai, fry the jamuns in batches.
7.Soak the jamuns in syrup till they doubles in size then serve.
