For jamun balls
- Carnation milk powder - 2 cup
- All purpose flour(maida) - 1/2 cup
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Whole milk just enough to make the dough
For the Sugar Syrup
- Sugar- 3 cups
- Water- 6 cups
- cardamom pods(crushed)- 5
- oil for frying
Gulab Jamun Preparation method
1. Take all purpose flour, milk powder, baking soda and butter in a big bowl. Add just enough whole milk or water to make a smooth Gulab Jamun dough. Let it stand for about 30 minutes. Alternatively, you can choose to buy the instant Gulab Jamun mix from the grocery stores. It is important to make this dough with good consistency - not too thick and not too watery. If it is too dense, your jamuns will end up unbreakable! :-)
2. Take a pan and make the sugar syrup with water, sugar and cardamom powder. Mix well and boil at medium temperature for about 15 to 20 minutes.
3. Transfer the sugar syrup into a serving dish.
4. Divide the dough you made in step 1 into smaller balls. Make small balls by gently rolling each portion into a round ball. Place the jamun balls on a plate.
5. Heat the oil and add the balls one by one. Cook on both sides for about 5 -6 minutes on medium heat.
6. Add the fried balls into the warm syrup. Gulab Jamun can be served warm or cold.
- Gulab jamuns balls must be cooked on medium temperatures. This will help the balls to cook completely and even browning.
