Homemade Gulab Jamun
You will need:
- Milk Powder
- All-purpose Flour
- Baking Soda
- Clarified Butter (Ghee)
- Cardamom Powder
- Rose Water
- First, in a large mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of milk powder, 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp of baking soda. Mix these dry ingredients well.
- Next, add 2 tbsp of clarified butter (ghee) and 1/4 cup of milk to the dry ingredients. Knead these together to create a soft and smooth dough. If the dough appears dry, add a little more milk.
- Now, take small portions of the dough and roll them into smooth, crack-free balls. Make sure the balls are not too big as they will expand while frying and soaking in syrup.
- To prepare the sugar syrup, take 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of water in a large pot. Add 1/2 tsp of cardamom powder, 1 tsp of rose water and a few strands of saffron. Boil this mixture until the sugar is completely dissolved and the syrup becomes slightly sticky.
- In a deep frying pan, heat sufficient ghee or oil. Deep fry the balls on low heat until they turn golden brown. Make sure to turn the balls in the oil frequently for even browning.
- Finally, soak the fried balls in the sugar syrup for at least two hours before serving. The Gulab Jamuns will absorb the syrup and become sweet and juicy.
Make sure the sugar syrup is warm when you add the fried balls. If the syrup is too hot, the balls may lose their shape. If it's too cold, they won't absorb the syrup properly.
