  • Heat the oil in a pan or deep fat fryer and fry the jamuns, in batches, over medium heat, until golden brown, allowing them to rise to the surface.
  • Remove the jamuns using a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towel.
  • Dip each warm jamun into the hot syrup and lightly roll in the desiccated coconut, if desired.
