In Western Asia, Gulab Jamun refers to a small round confection in a spiced syrup. In Trinidad and Tobago however, this treat is known as Rasgulla although it is not the same as Bengali Rasgulla.

Gulab Jamun in Trinidad and Tobago is instead a sweet that is somewhat similar to the traditional Asian version in terms of the soft texture but visually similar to kurma. It is often referred to as ‘fat kurma’.
