Take a sauce pan.Add sugar and water as mentioned.let it melt well..boil for 10 minutes and then add saffron and rose water into it for a beautiful color and flavor.
NOTE-1 soft string syrup goes best with gulabjamun.Mildly sticky.

Put a pan in medium flame to deep fry the balls.Pour good quantity of oil so that the balls gets dipped in well enough.Make sure the temperature is not too hot to deep fry the balls nicely and evenly.
Use a spoon to gently stir the oil time to time to make balls even in color.As you can see the balls have been started to look light golden.Cook until it takes a dark golden color in low to medium flame.
As the above picture shows,you can see the balls doubled in size.Cook for few more minutes and then use a straining spoon to take out the balls gently and put it into the sugar syrup.Keep it aside for 2 to 3 hours for the syrup to be absorbed well.And the super delicious gulabjamun is all ready to be served👍👍
