When you eat a gulab jamun and feel like you have been transformed to another world of palate? Are you a hard core lover of such extremely sweet tasting balls? Then this unconventional sweet potato jamun is for you. You may wonder why isn’t there any conventional gulab jamun recipe in this space till now. I perfectly honor your quest, let me make it clear for you. It’s because I am not fond of overly sweet things and jamun tastes too very sweet in my mouth. I just cannot withstand the sweetness. That is the reason ready made gulab jamun mix package doesn’t appear in my grocery list often. Unless kids make exclusive demand for it.
Sweet potato jamun is with us today to mark the 5th anniversary of this blog udupi-recipes.com. For those of you who follow me, it may seem that the years passed super fast but in reality the blog has taken shape in very slow and steady motion. One cannot erupt a blog with good and quality content in a day or two. Insane amount of work goes behind the scenes and it demands passion and persistence towards the work. Thanks to all of you who stop by to like, comment, email and check in the blog from time to time. I feel the deepest gratitude for everything.
While celebrating the blog-anniversary, I wanted to remark the milestone with a overly sweet recipe. And you know what I mean by “Overly sweet“, it’s nothing but Jamun. Instead of ready-made mix, I made them using sweet potato. In absence of unhealthy flour, the balls are prepared using an awesome veggie. And they very well soak up in the sugar syrup that you’ll never notice the taste difference. My kids justified this fact by clearing off all the sweet potato jamun soon after the photo shoot 😛 .
