Y’all, the Internet is crazy and I mean that in the best of ways! Some real genius sugar fiends across the webs have come up with different ways to use gulab jamun as a sub-ingredient for a whole other dish and my head has already imploded from the sugar rush and sheer creativity.

If you want to serve up a classic desi dessert in a different way, these recipes may just be your jamun. See what I did there?

You can buy gulab jamun and use the ready-made goods in many of these recipes.
