Hello Everyone,
Kala Jamun is on
e of the favorite desserts amongst the Indians. It is a delicious Indian dessert very similar to Gulab Jamun. It is an exotic dessert served on special occasions. Kala Jamuns have a unique texture as they are soft outside and grainy inside. So, I made little bit changes and made this yummylicious dessert. I also got to know about this recipe from one of our caterer,  while planning my nephew's birthday party. We were confused about dessert menu; then our caterer asked us to try the "Traffic Jamun."  And it was an instant hit at the birthday party. Every guest was in love with "Kala Jamun Traffic Jam ". Since then I got to know I have become a big fan of these Traffic Jams.

Recipe :
How to make Kala Jamun Traffic Jam
1) To make dough for kala jamun :
Take a flat bowl, add instant Gulab Jamun mix and paneer, milk and mix all these ingredients well. Rub and mix everything well until smooth. For kneading and if it is too dry, add  more milk. Add ½ tbsp ghee to make smooth dough and keep aside for 3 to 4 minutes.

2) To Make stuffing for kala jamun : Meanwhile in a separate bowl add finely chopped almonds, chopped cashews, pistachios, truity fruity and now pinch 2 tsp paneer mixture dough and add it to the stuffing and mix everything really
well. Add some food color to the stuffing and mix well.

3) Sugar syrup : Heat ½ liter of water in a large pan over medium flame. Add the sugar and stir well until fully dissolved. When it starts to boil or to get little sticky, add saffron strands and cardamom powder and lemon juice. Mix well, cover and remove from flame.

4) To make kala jamun with stuffing and fry : Apply few drops of ghee on your palm and make small balls of same size from prepared jamun dough. Now, flatten it w
ith your fingers, stuff it with little amount of stuffing and close the stuffing nicely. (As shown in the video). Now roll into a round shape using your palms and place them on a plate. Similarly make the remaining doughs jamun and place them all on a plate. Make sure there should not be any cracks on balls.

5) Frying of kala jamun :  Simultaneously keep a frying pan on medium flame and add refined oil into it to fry jamun. Heat oil for deep frying over medium flame. Fry the prepared jamuns until they get brown  color. Now, drain out the fried ja
muns and soak them in sugar syrup. Similarly prepare dough balls from the entire mawa, fry them and drenched in sugar syrup. Keep aside for 8 hours or overnight in the fridge. The jamuns absorb sugar and get sweeter. You can have them after 2 to 3 hours.

6) To Make Traffic Jamun : Drain out jamun from sugar syrup, cut and make its two similar parts and garnish them with whipped cream ( I used Eggless Whipping Cream, made from Aquafaba, if you want this Eggless Whipping Cream recipe cli
ck on this link - ​http://www.aaichisavali.com/2017/03/eggless-whipping-cream.html) and rainbow sprinkles. Here delicious, yummy and mouth watering, “ TRAFFIC JAMUNs” ready to serve. Enjoy!!!

Good Time To Eat :
             Anytime is a good time to eat Kala Jamun as a dessert.

Eat Healthy, Stay Healthy.
