    • Kneading the dough is a quite tough job to me.. if you get  sticky dough then add few tsp of maida/ALP to the dough and knead well. 
    • if you take a pitch of dough in your palm and roll it to a ball, here it should not stick to your hand, ball should get a perfect shape without any cracks,  after rolling the balls your palm should be clean, then the dough is perfect..
    • If the dough is thick then cracks will form in the balls add few drops of water and knead again, if the balls is loosen they’ll stick in your hands and when you drop in the oil/ghee they lose the shape.
    • When adding nut mixture i didn’t add any water to it, i knead it in the dough moisture and the nuts mixture had a nature to mix with the dough easily… if you feel its dry and difficult in knead then add few drops of water to it..
    • I used powdered food color, if you have liquid one you can use with that..
    • Adjust the Sugar level to your taste buds, i used some less sugar when compared to the packet instruction, and finally i get a dry bowl of jamuns..
    • When Frying the balls, care full with flame.. keep high once and low the heat and drop jamuns.. adjust the heat according to your kadai and vessel you use.. Always you need to adjus the flames often when doing these kind of deep frying job..
