Bread gulab jamun is an easy and instant fried sweet recipe where balls made out of bread dough are fried in oil and then soaked in sugar syrup. I prepared this recipe for the very first time last year when we received our own house key as i wished to prepare something different and got hold of this recipe which I was skeptical of giving a try for a long time. They turned perfect and so today. Trust me no one will even get to know these jamuns are made with bread until you tell them. These jamuns are so delicious and easy to make as well. So lets get to the making!
