Gulab Jamun II

I have already posted a gulab jamun recipe(click on the link for recipe). That recipe uses milk. It was my first post. So when I see it today, I am not at all satisfied with the snap and the post. But the recipe yields very delicious jamuns. I think I need to update it with new photos. Today's jamun recipe uses mawa and paneer. I saw this in a book I bought recently. I tried it and the result was marvelous. I prepared the jamuns with home made mawa(click on link for the recipe). The jamuns were very soft and we enjoyed it thoroughly. I also made a video for this recipe which I am attaching at the end. Please go through the video and give me feed back on how I could improve my videos. This video was taken last month but only now I could post it.

5. Heat ghee. It should be warm and not hot.

9. Remove the fried jamuns from ghee and place them on the plate. Finish off with all the balls.
10. In a separate pan, add sugar and water.
11. Heat it and keep on stirring until the sugar melts completely.
