Heat the oil on low and divide the dough into 10 equal size balls and smoothen till they don’t have any cracks. Add the dumplings into the oil (oil should be warm not hot) Fry them till they are golden all over. Take care not to touch them when they are tender. Once they start to change their color then you can move them around.
Meanwhile while the jamun are getting done, prepare the sugar syrup by boiling the sugar and water, bring the mixture to a boil, add in rose essence, saffron, cardamom powder and turn off the heat.
Add the fried jamuns to the warm sugar syrup and rest them for 15 – 20 mins. They will double in their size. Serve them garnished with the cashews or any other nuts along with the sugar syrup.
