Gulab Jamun

I used to prepare gulab jamuns with ready mix. But I always wanted to prepare it with milk powder. I made an attempt almost 2 yrs back. It was a big flop that my husband couldn’t stop laughing looking at it. With a little fear I made another attempt and it came out so well. It was soft, moist and tasted best. Now I will never buy gulab jamun ready mix. I am sharing the recipe with all so that every one can make it with normal milk powder.

 Ingredients:

  • Milk powder – 1 ½ cups
  • Cardamom powder – ¼ tsp
  • All purpose flour (Maida) – 3 tbsp
  • Baking powder – 1 ½ tsp
  • Egg – 1
  • Milk – 1/3 cup
  • Oil – for frying

 

For Sugar Syrup

  • Sugar – 1.5  cups
  • Water – 2 cups
  • Cardamom powder – ¼ tsp

(Note: 1 Cup = 250 ml)

  • Add beaten egg and mix well.

 

Gulab Jamun1

  • Add milk and mix again. Add little oil to the pan and make it to a soft dough

 

Gulab Jamun3

  • Apply little oil to your palm and make dough to 24 balls ( the size may look small, but it will almost double when you fry the same)

 

Gulab Jamun4

  • Heat oil in a pan and fry in low heat turning them in between till its light brown in color
  • For the sugar syrup heat all the ingredients together in another pan. Let it boil for 2-3 min so that sugar syrup will thicken slightly. Switch of the stove.
  • Soak the gulab jamuns in the sugar syrup prepared. Keep it closed for some time

 

Tips:

  • It takes some time for the sugar syrup to get into gulab jamun. It will become soft again and taste best the next day.

    • Dear Vimni,

      Sorry to hear rasgulla turned out hard. The reason why rasgulla is hard because the kneading part of paneer is not done proper. You need to this step very well to get soft rasgullas
