i am a huge fan of gulab jamun recipe. i used to gulp down 4 to 5 hot gulab jamuns with a scoop of vanilla ice cream during my college days. however, i have become more cautious these days and i control my desire for it. even though the jamun tastes so good, it is loaded with calories. therefore i generally lookout for some easy and economical alternatives to it. well, rasa vada sweet recipe or moong dal gulab jamun is a no better alternative but when compared to the traditional one, it is much easier to prepare and cheaper to prepare. moreover, it is made with moong dal lentil which is always a better option compared to the plain flour and milk powder used in the traditional one. having said that there is a difference in the taste and you cannot expect the same texture and softness as the milk powder or khoya based jamuns. do try this and let me know your experience with it.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to the rasa vada sweet recipe or moong dal gulab jamun. firstly, the recipe is generally prepared with moong dal lentil dough, but can also be prepared with other types of dal too. preferably, you can choose urad dal, masoor dal and even toor dal as alternatives. secondly, i have added mawa or khoya with moong dal batter. adding it helps to make it more creamy and tasty. yet it is optional and does not panic if you do not have access to it. lastly, the deep-frying process is very critical for this recipe. like the traditional gulab jamun frying, even these have to be fried on medium flame so that it gets cooked evenly. also, dip these in sugar syrup while it is warm so that it absorbs the sugar syrup to make it moist and juicy.
