Ingredients Serving: 7

  1. 2 cups homemade paneer or cottage cheese, crumbled
  2. 1/4 teaspoon Baking powder
  3. 3 teaspoon All Purpose Flour (Maida)
  4. 2 teaspoon Milk
  5. Cooking oil , to deep fry
  6. 9 Raisins for the filling
  7. Ingredients For Sugar Syrup :
  8. 1 cup Sugar
  9. 1/2 cup Water
  10. 1 teaspoon Cardamom (Elaichi) Powder


  1. To prepare the Paneer Gulab Jamun Recipe (Delicious Diwali Sweet), take the homemade paneer in a large bowl.
  2. Add in the flour, baking powder and milk, and knead all the ingredients well to make the soft dough.
  3. Once the dough is done, cover it with a cling film and allow it to rest in the refrigerator for about 10 - 15 minutes.
  4. For the sugar syrup, boil the sugar, water and cardamom pods in a heavy bottomed sauce pan, and stir continuously till it becomes sticky of one string consistency.
  5. Once done, take it off the heat and keep aside.
  6. Next, shape the paneer dough into round lemon sized balls. While doing this, place a raisin inside each one of them.
  7. Preheat the oil for deep frying; add a few paneer balls at a time and deep fry these jamun balls in hot oil for a few minutes on medium heat turning them over so that they are lightly browned on both sides.
  8. Once all the jamuns are done, remove the excess oil and set them aside. Finally, add these fried jamuns to the warm sugar syrup.
  9. Allow them to rest for about 2 hours in the syrup to absorb all the sugary sweetness.
