Ingredients to make Mawa Gulab Jamuns

  • 100 gms khoya/ mava
  • 50 gms flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda/ cooking soda (soda should be white in colour)
  • 11/4 tbsp milk
  • Oil/ ghee for frying (I used half and half)
  • For the Syrup
  • 2 Cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • (1-2 drops) Rose essence and pinch of elaichi powder
  • Garnish Few almonds

How to make Mawa Gulab Jamuns

  1. Make a dough of mawa, flour, baking soda along with milk little by little. It has to be a firm soft dough without any cracks as shown in the pic.
  2. Take ghee and oil in half and half ratio till you can soak the jamun completely. Make oblong/ round shape jamuns and put one at a time in the oil. The temperature of the oil should not be too hot.
  3. Once fried into golden brown remove them carefully and drain on a tissue.
  4. When you finish frying three-fourth of the lot, keep the syrup ready by mixing the sugar and water and essence/ cardamom powder and place on the gas stove. The syrup has to be hot when you plan to drop the jamun into them.
  5. Let the jamuns soak for two to three hours. Garnish with almonds.

My Tip:

If you don't find mawa, you can make a mixture of 60 grams paneer and 40 grams cashew nut powder.
