  ✍️Make sure the paneer is at room temperature.

✍️Keep the sugar syrup slightly hot while adding jamuns then only the paneer will absorb the syrup.. It takes time to absorb the sugar syrup.
✍️Deep fry the jamuns in low flame only.
✍️If you overcook the jamuns it will become rubbery.
✍️This jamun will be slightly chewy in consistency just like rasgolla.
✍️Add rose essence if you like.
