Custard Gulab Jamun

Custard Gulab Jamun is a creamy custard served chilled with some delicious gulab jamuns is a tempting combo of desserts served together.

What is Jamun and Custard?

Jamun or kala jamun is a deep-fried Indian sweet balls dunked in sugar syrup and custard is simple thick milk and custard pudding made with cornstarch/custard powder.

I made kala jamun and served it with vanilla saffron-flavored custard and it was a match made just for each other. But frankly, it doesn’t make any difference if you use Gulab or Kala Jamun, in fact, you can also make rasgulla custard if desired.

If you are in a hurry or do not have time to cook the jamuns you can always use the store bought ones and make the custard ahead, so when it’s time for a party or dinner night you can serve it to your guest and please them.

In fact, I also made this combination dessert for a dinner party with some friends and everyone was pleased enjoying this tempting dessert.
