Gulab jamun with ricotta cheese

Am running this week's blogging marathon with Special theme as theme, and this gulab jamuns are ready within less than an hour. I simply love this short cut method, you doesnt need to get readymade gulab jamuns packets from Indian stores from now if you get ricotta cheese easily from your nearby super markets. Since ricotta cheese are cheaper for me, am sure this recipe is definitely a keeper for me to dish out these succulent jamubs often at home.

Ricotta cheese comes very handy to prepare some of the Indian sweets. And it is the same for. Ricotta is easily available and have to travel at least 20 minutes to get the mix.
