How to make Gulab Jamun

  1. With the heel of your palm,mash the khoya, so that no grains remain.
  2. Mix in the flour and baking soda and knead with help of milk into dough. The dough should be firm but should not feel dry.(softer than the chapati dough)
  3. Shape the dough into Jamuns try to make it smooth and crease-less.
  4. Heat ghee in the flat base kadai over medium heat.
  5. Add as many jamuns as will fit in, without one touching the other. Keeping the heat low, fry these till a golden brown all over.
  6. Drain the jamuns out of the ghee. Keep the gulab jamuns aside till the syrup is ready.
  7. Mix equal quantity of sugar and water and place over low heat, stirring till the sugar dissolves. Make sure it does not boil.
  8. Increase the heat once the sugar dissolves, and then bring mixture to boil. Cook till syrup thickens a bit. It will take around 7-8 minutes
  9. Take syrup off stove and cool for a minimum of half an hour. Add cardamom and bring syrup to a boil again.
  10. Add the fried gulab jamuns to it. Let jamuns soak for at least an hour

My Tip:

Serve hot with ice cream.
