  4. Add little bit of water and make it into a smooth dough and knead the dough well. Use 1 tbsp of ghee and knead. Take ¼th of the dough, add cardamom powder, sugar, color and mix well.( you can even add chopped nuts to it). Make small balls.
  5. Divide the colored and white dough into equal portions. Take the white dough spread, spread it and then stuff the coloured dough into it and close. Make a round shape or bullet shape ball. Keep aside and repeat the same process for entire
  6. Once the jamuns are ready, Heat oil. In a low flame, fry the jamuns till they are golden brown for 5-6 minutes. Remove (with no oil totally) and keep aside for ten minutes.
  7. And fry the jamuns again after ten minutes in low flame for 3- 4minutes; they will get a black color outside. But do not keep in high heat and burn them. Add these jamuns to hot sugar syrup soak for atleast 3 hours and serve.
