    Ingredients to make GULAB JAMUN

    • 400 gms, khowa/mawa at room temperature
    • 7 tbsp, all-purpose flour(maida)
    • 10 tbsp, milk powder
    • Generous 2 pinches of soda bi-carb
    • Few tbsp. of milk if required
    • Oil/ghee for frying
    • For Syrup:-
    • 4 cups, sugar
    • 4 cups, water
    • 1 tsp, cardamom powder
    • Few saffron strands
    • For garnish:-
    • Slivered pistachios and almonds
    • Silver warq (paper)

    How to make GULAB JAMUN

    1. Prepare syrup by boiling sugar, water, cardamom powder. Remove scum if any. Add saffron and boil it for another 12-15 minutes on medium flame
    2. In a large bowl, grate khowa. Add maida, milk powder and soda. Mix them well
    3. Knead the mixture with heels of you palm so that everything gets blends well and comes together to form soft lumpfree dough. If dough is dry add few tbsp. of milk. Do not add to much at a time.
    4. (The khowa I used gave me the soft dough so I dint have to add milk at all). Keep it aside for 10 minutes
    5. Meanwhile heat oil/ghee in kadhai or pan. Make small equal sized smooth balls from the dough (while frying, the jamuns will double in size so make the small balls accordingly).
    6. Do not apply too much pressure and avoid cracks on jamuns. When the oil is hot, reduce the flame to medium low. Oil should be hot but not smoky. If the oil is too hot the jamuns will burn and remain uncooked within.
    7. Gently slide the jamuns in the oil. Firstly jamuns will sink at bottom, after few seconds it will float on the top. Keep stirring jamuns with ladle so that they get evenly fried. Fry them till brown.
    8. Once done carefully take them out on absorbent paper and drop them in hot sugar syrup.
    9. Repeat the same for all the jamuns but do not add too many jamuns for frying at a time.
    10. Leave the Gulab Jamuns aside to allow the jamuns to soak the sugar syrup well, atleast for an hour or so.
    11. Serve them warm garnished with silver paper and slivered pistachios and almonds. Enjoy them as it is or with ice cream of your choice.
