Indian sweets are just so inviting that you cannot say no to them. Having talked about gulab jamun in a past article, let’s today pick up Kala Jam. A lot of people get confused between the two, however they are two distinct sweets. The basic difference between these two is that the Kala Jam is slightly tight with some filling in the middle¬†and it more darker than the gulab jamun. However in the taste they both beat each other. Its also easily possible to make this sweet at home and use it for any celebration. You can keep them refrigerated for few days and use them as needed. Let’s see the Kala Jam Recipe here.
