Gulab Jamun is my all time favourite dessert and when seeing those mouth-watering dumplings I can not stop eating them.
In past I had several failed attempts in making jamuns and almost I gave up but Luckily I got my sister in law’s recipe and it turned out to be a great one and a lifesaving recipe.
Today I am going to share that awesome easy recipe with you.
- Milk powder 400 g
- All purpose flour 200 g
- Butter 100 g
- Baking soda 1 tsp
- Milk to make the dough
- Oil for frying
- Sugar 1 kg
- water 4 cups
- Rose water little optional
- Cardamom 6 pods
mix all the ingredients and make a dough it should be very smooth and do not knead it as it will make the jamuns hard. then roll them in to small shiny balls without cracks and deep fry them in low flame.
when frying you have to be very careful with the temperature. The oil should not be very hot or low. If it is very hot the centre would not be cooked well. To check the ideal temperature put a small ball in to the oil, it should be settle at the bottom and rise slowly at the count of 10. that’s the ideal temperature so put the dumplings in small batches and fry them until cooked or golden brown .
after frying put the jamuns immediately in the syrup make sure the syrup is warm. and let it soak for atleast 2 hours.
To make sugar syrup dissolve the sugar in water and bring to a boil atleast 10 minutes in medium flame. add cardamom and stir the syrup in between.when syrup starts turning sticky switch off.
This gulab jamun is very yummy and soft.it will melt in your mouth. you can substitute milk with cream it will give you a very creamy taste.
thaks myni for your recipe.
