Gulab Jamun is a very popular dessert dish in India and surrounding countries. It is usually made with Khoya and panner (Cheese), both milk based items. But tried making it with Bread to ease out the process and the outcome was great. And the presentation in form of lollipops/candies, made it even more fascinating.
