I love gulab jamun, and had a craving to make it. This recipe was tasty, however it wasn't really like the real thing. The dough was very runny, so I used one of those small ice cream scoopers that you squeeze and it clears out the contents. It made decent balls and it definitely kept me from getting messy trying to work with that pancake-y batter with my hands. I liked the syrup, but included more cardamom and added a twinge of imitation butter flavouring. Basically, even though I enjoyed these, they tasted like funnel cakes with syrup on them (in place of the normal topping of powdered sugar). So yes, still good, but mine didn't really taste like the gulab jamun I love.
