Gulab Jamuns @ A-1 store August 28 2013
Today, my friend and I went to India A1 on Lee Highway (address: 4815 Lee Highway, Arlington, VA) for lunch. Today being Janmastami, I decided to get some sweets (Lord Krishna's birthday). They suggested Gulab Jamun that is made in the store itself. Gulab Jamuns are deep fried milk cheese balls and dunked in a semi-thick sugar syrup.
I have always complained on my blogs that Indian restaurants in USA do not do a good job with Gulab Jamun, as it is a skill that is not acquired as easy as these chefs think it can be. Today, I had my best Gulab Jamun in USA. It is above average when compared to Gulab Jamuns in India, but I highly recommend these from this store.
