Use good quality milk powder
Some recipes call for curds or yogurt to knead i prefer adding milk
Always fry the gulab jamuns over medium flame,make sure the oil/ghee is not too hot else the balls will be uncooked from inside and brown from the outer side.
I had extra sugar syrup remaining you can use 1 1/2 cup sugar and  1 1/2 cup  water
