  1. Wow, first to comment. The jamuns look so perfect and tempting to eat. Can you taste the potato? I am so curious, that I will give it a try.

    Thanks for sharing.


  2. Hi,when i was searching for potato halwa i found your jamun recipe,it turned out well and was similar to the picture though my jamun was a bit small.The taste was awesome.



  3. Hi Sunitha,

    Thank you for visiting my blog. Nice to hear that the jamuns turned out well.

  4. Can you please tell me what is koya? and where do you get it ? Can we prepare at home?

    • Koya is also known as Mawa. You can make it at home by boiling milk and reduce it to a thick solid consistency. Or make Instant khoya, recipe available in the sweet section of this site.
